Backstage Talk on Plans for Orton-Ziggler, Eve to Referee?, More

– We noted earlier that WWE has plans for Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara to win the Tag Team Titles. The belts would go to Titus O’Neil and Darren Young for some time before Cara and Rey captured them.

– Regarding the news about Eve Torres possibly replacing Kaitlyn as the #1 contender to Layla’s Divas Title, there was talk at this week’s TV tapings that Eve could be the special referee for Layla vs. Kaitlyn at Night of Champions.

– Future plans for Randy Orton were also discussed at this week’s WWE TV tapings. Orton has been re-added to this weekend’s live events and could be wrestling at Night of Champions. Regarding him taking time off to shoot 12 Rounds: Reloaded, it looks like WWE will be working his filming around what they need him for on the road.

The talk at this week’s tapings was that by the time Orton finishes 12 Rounds, they may have Dolph Ziggler cash in and win the World Heavyweight Title from Sheamus. This would set up Orton’s return with the idea that he’s coming back for revenge and the World Heavyweight Title.

    LOL. You’re all a bunch of hypocrits, around 5-6 months ago you was all moaning how little he puts people over, now he’s a saint. LOL.

    Orton has put over two people in two years. Mark Henry and Miz.

    That’s it.

    I’m no fan of Cena, but at least he put over the Miz and CM Punk in the same year.

    Orton putting people over?! What show have you been watching for the last two years?! None of those guys (Cena, Sheamus, Orton) have consistently put people over. Sheamus I can kind of understand since they’re trying to build him as the face of SmackDown…but come on. Orton has killed more pushes than anyone on the roster.

    Christian, half of Rhodes push was killed (the other half courtesy of Big Slow), Wade Barrett, Kofi Kingston…hell, last RAW was the first time Ziggler beat Orton one-on-one after like 8 matches.

    Orton, like Triple H & Shawn Michaels, are like fine wine. They’ve grown better with age. They all used to be arrogant & inexperienced, but grew to be humbled talents with veteran-like know-how. HBK helped humble & put over Triple H, Triple H did the same to Randy Orton, & Orton should(& probably will) continue the trend with Dolph Ziggler, not to mention the other guys these three grew up to put over.

  • Stevie P

    Out of the top 3 (Cena, Sheamus and Orton), Orton has been really the only one putting people over. I hope he can continue to do that and he’s willing since it seems they for some reason can’t do that with Cena and Sheamus.

    randy should job to his wife beating, cheating, too big for himself ego!

    Idk I kinda disagree. Orton has been like Shawn Michaels in a sense when it comes to titles. He has put over multiple people without there seeming to be a problem. Miz an Henry to be exact. Both beat him kinda cleanly, at least Henry did for sure. Now if we could get him to job to the up and comers sometimes we’d b in business. I feel that Rhodes shoulda beat Orton last year (the fued where Rhodes got the Dr Doom mask ripped off) an he shoulda put over Ziggler way more than he has. (I get he’s a “lackey” an does what he’s told but still his character could stand to lose matches a lot more)

    No, WWE shouldn’t do that. They THINK they’ll have Orton there to feud with and elevate Ziggler, but when the time actually comes we all know WWE will puss out and just have Orton win as usual.
