Source: PWInsider.com It's been reported ever since Chris Jericho returned to WWE back in January that he would probably take another break from WWE some time over the summer. He recently stated at the Revolver Golden God Awards that he would be touring with his band Fozzy over the summer and could possibly miss WWE's 2012 SummerSlam pay-per-view. In yet another update on the situation, the band Fozzy announced today on the Rockstar Uproar Tour that Jericho will be leaving WWE by the month of August to tour with Fozzy between the dates of August 15th and September 30th. If this is the only time that Jericho has to tour with Fozzy, then he very well could be back by the 2012 Survivor Series PPV, if not well before then

Source:PWInsider.com There is a ton of heat on Rey Mysterio right now with the feeling that he was getting paid well to sit home and heal but he couldn't stay clean. The feeling was that Some in the company believe that Kevin Nash's comments last week about a friend being released by WWE were talking about Mysterio but nothing has been heard about Rey being released. He is currently serving a 60-day suspension.

Following the Extreme Rules PPV on Sunday, there was a huge backstage blow-up involving Brock Lesnar. According to several sources, Lesnar lost it on a number of WWE officials and began ripping apart a dressing room, upset over the John Cena promo that closed the PPV. The original plan was for Cena, despite winning, to be so beaten that he was carried out of the building, leaving an opening for Lesnar to brag that while he had lost the battle on a fluke, he had won the war. When Cena decided to address the audience, Lesnar perceived it as Cena double crossing him and lost in on WWE officials. It's not yet known how they calmed him down, but tonight's angle with HHH was planned in advance as a way to remove Lesnar from TV. Sources within the company have indicated that Lesnar's current deal only requires him to work two dates minimum per month. Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting hat WWE's new mentality with Lesnar is that they're paying a lot of money for a guy who is not their top guy, so he should be used when he can to put over their top talents. People in Lesnar's camp were feeling like WWE was just testing Lesnar by having Cena cut the post-match speech. Brock was told before the Extreme Rules match that Cena would go out on a stretcher and look totally incapacitated and be injured. Lesnar went nuts backstage in front of everyone, tearing things up and throwing a tantrum. Lesnar specifically yelled at Marc Carano, the assistant to John Laurinaitis, about how things are a mess and everything is wrong in WWE. Some felt that part of the tantrum was just an act by Lesnar to show to the locker room that he could quit at any minute. Some of those same people felt that WWE officials could have been involved in Lesnar trying to work the other talents. Lesnar also suggested that Cena intentionally pulled down the top rope at Extreme Rules, causing him to nearly blow out his knee in the bad spot towards the end of the match where they both tumbled over to the floor. Again, most believe that there is no real heat between Cena and Lesnar over this and this also could have been part of an act by Lesnar. Despite what's an act and what's part of the TV storylines, sources insist that Lesnar's status and future with WWE is a sticky situation. While Lesnar vs. Triple H is in the works for SummerSlam, some in the company are already predicting that he will end up working the remaining big pay-per-view events of 2012, Royal Rumble 2013 and then WrestleMania 29 before being done with the company.
