Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterBrian "Road Dogg" James has been gaining more influence within WWE as of late. Part of the reason why is because Michael "PS" Hayes was sent home several weeks back.
We noted at first that Hayes was given time off to deal with personal issues. Last night, word came out that Hayes may have been suspended indefinitely for offering alcoholic beverages to Rosa Mendes just days after she returned to work after a stint in rehab.
Hayes had been working with Triple H on booking live events, among other things. James is now filling in on that position and it was described as James being on the rise because Hayes gave him an opening. Besides doing TV events and live events, James is also working in the WWE offices quite a bit. Most of the wrestlers are happy with James' presence in creative meetings since he's been around the business so much longer than most of the decision makers, plus he talks the language of the wrestlers.
