In the last few months, former Fabulous Freebirds’ leader Michael Hayes has been on leave from the WWE Creative Team after rumors of backstage unprofessionalism ran rampant. According to PWInsider on Dec. 3, Hayes returned to the WWE on “WWE Monday Night Raw” last night.
The reason behind the WWE removing Hayes from the creative team is rumored to be because of an incident between Hayes and WWE Diva Rosa Mendes.
Mendes had taken off from the WWE during a European tour over the summer because of alcohol problems and she went home to deal with her issues. When she finally returned, it looked like she had cleaned up and was ready to move on with her career.
However, Hayes allegedly offered her alcohol while the WWE was out on the road, something that was not taken well when reported to the WWE and he was immediately sent home, reportedly to deal with “personal issues.” Mendes is continuing to wrestle in the WWE under a new gimmick since her former charges are not wrestling as Los Matadores.
The “WWE Monday Night Raw” event in Oklahoma City last night was Michael Hayes’ first time back with the company since the incident and he is now back full-time as a member of the WWE Creative Team.
