We noted before that Randy Orton missed Monday’s WWE RAW because he’s on vacation in Bora Bora with his girlfriend. Orton had asked for time off and won’t be back until the July 6th RAW. With the July 19th Battleground pay-per-view taking place from his hometown of St. Louis, it makes sense for Orton to be on that show and a match against Sheamus is possible.
– As PWMania.com reported, next week’s episode of WWE Tough Enough is titled “Swamp Stories.” Roman Reigns filmed a segment for the show on Wednesday, apparently with the cast in a swamp.
– Yesterday we posted that Triple H teased a WWE NXT live event for SummerSlam weekend in New York City. One idea discussed was a live WWE Network special with the NXT brand to be held the night before SummerSlam in Brooklyn. If they go this route, the special would go up against Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling in the same area.
