WWE News: Lillian update, SmackDown diva to undergo surgery, Vince/Linda’s salary

Justin Roberts will continue to take WWE RAW announcer Lillian Garcia’s spot until she fully recovers from her surgery that repaired her torn ACL.

As reported a few weeks ago, one of the screws holding together SmackDown diva Ashley Massaro’s ankle came loose and she will have to undergo surgery to tighten in back up. The surgery is scheduled for this coming week. No word yet on how long she will be out of action.

Both Vince and Linda McMahon will be taking salaries again starting this year. Because the family was taking so much out in dividends (around $44 million per year) they elected not to take salaries the past two years. This year Vince will earn $850,000 while Linda will earn $500,000.
