- While Randy Orton’s suspension was the big news on Wednesday, what had everyone in a panic at WWE headquarters was the low 2.7 RAW Supershow rating.
– Speaking of Orton, the WWE writing team didn’t find out about his suspension until it was announced online. They were working on an Orton vs. Dolph Ziggler feud when the suspension came down.
No word yet on when Orton failed a Wellness test but it appears some in the company knew about it days before. Speculation is that John Cena was added to SmackDown tapings because they knew Orton was on his way out for 60 days. At the same time, WWE booked Orton strong on Monday night as he did an in-ring segment with The Miz and laid him out.
– The idea of merging the Intercontinental Title and the United States Title was being worked on a few weeks back. Sources say the WWE Title and the World Heavyweight Title won’t be merged because WWE needs one major title on each of the RAW and SmackDown tours.
