Tonight’s SmackDown, Backstage News on Dolph Ziggler, More

– Apparently Randy Orton is doing a lot of stunt work for WWE Studios’ 12 Rounds: Reloaded this week. He tweeted about working on the movie:

“13 hours ago I began my first day of shooting #12RoundsReloaded. What an experience. To be a part of this film is truly a honor.”

– As a reminder, WWE Superstars will be airing today on WWE’s website.

– Matches for tonight’s WWE SmackDown include Santino Marella vs. Antonio Cesaro in a United States Title Match, Wade Barrett vs. Zack Ryder, Natalya vs. Beth Phoenix, The Usos vs. Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow in the first tag team tournament match, Ryback vs. Tensai plus Randy Orton vs. Big Show int he main event. WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz will also host another segment of MizTV with World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus as his guest.

– We’ve noted before that Ric Flair was rumored to be brought in as a new mouthpiece for Dolph Ziggler. While WWE officials say they aren’t negotiating with Flair, there has been talk of having Ziggler fire Vickie Guerrero before winning the World Heavyweight Title. The idea would to pair Ziggler with a new mouthpiece once he’s won the World Heavyweight Title. Ziggler is expected to become champion before the year is over.

    You are right, it is going to be hugely unpopular. But I for one agree with you.

    I think Ziggler will do good as the WHC, and with Ric Flair as his manager, he will have all the tools he needs and then some to be a pretty good champion.

    Ziggler doesn’t need a manager anymore, but if he HAS to have one, I say go with Flair or even Paul Heyman. Vickie’s been with Ziggler for 2 years. It’s gotten a bit old, anyways.

  • False Idol

    I know this is going to be hugely unpopular but I absolutely don’t think he’s ready to be champion, I think he’s going to be a poor champion and the only thing that will carry him is a motuhpiece, don’t care who it is. IT’s just a shame there are more talented superstars on the roster who’d be a much better champion than him!

    Dolph Ziggler doesn’t even need a mouthpiece once he is champion. If he does nobody but Flair/Vicki

  • If he fire vickie and wwe is not talking to flair, so who would they have in mind to be his manager?
