Update on the WWE Network Launch, Backstage News on Dolph Ziggler, Orton

– As noted before, WWE is looking to launch The Network next year in time for WrestleMania 28. People in the company are shocked that it may be coming so soon. WWE will be going with a very aggressive marketing campaign when it launches.

– WWE United States Champion Dolph Ziggler is getting praised backstage regarding how he comes across like a star in his interviews. Also, Ziggler got marks for carrying Mason Ryan in their recent match.

– There’s an inside joke going around this week that Randy Orton will win the 2012 Royal Rumble but Vince McMahon will change that plan once he’s reminded the Rumble is in Orton’s hometown of St. Louis.

    zigglers been my favourite performer in the wwe since, since well i guess since he springboard kicked batista in the head in his debut match.

    Good for Ziggler, he’s done some pretty good work, and has only gotten better since starting. Hopefully this will boost him into the main event picture sooner rather than later. With him and Cody Rhodes doing well (and holding the US and Intercontinental titles, no less), it’s nice to see new guys having credible rises to the top.

    Hey, maybe they will “fire” Randy in front of his hometown fans! Isn’t that how it’s done, Vinny Mac???

    Have somebody like Sheamus or Punk win the Rumble. Orton can get a title shot anytime he wants becuse he’s a golden boy. Then again, Orton will probably RKO everybody in the ring at once out of no where.
