Randy Orton 2012

- WWE NXT developmental talents Angelo Dawkins, Baron Corbin, Enzo Amore, Judas Devlin, Knuckles Madsen, Memo Montenegro, Sawyer Fulton, Sylvester leFort, Travis Tyler, and Troy McClain have been added to the WWE NXT roster page on the NXT website.

- World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler took a shot at WWE’s booking on Twitter after a fan asked about becoming a showoff. Here is the exchange:

Sanchez The Great @STG212
@HEELZiggler Can you explain how does one become a showoff?

Dolph Ziggler@HEELZiggler
“@STG212: how does one become a showoff?
by saying ‘show off’ over & over
instead of anything of substance
right @wwe?

- Despite Randy Orton hitting Daniel Bryan with an RKO on Smackdown on the latest SmackDown episode, he remained a babyface at this weekend’s WWE Live Events and teamed with Daniel Bryan in his matches. There was no tease of an Orton heel turn during the bouts.

    that was randy being randy…but it doesnt make sense that he would be pissed at bryan when he hit bryan by accident last week.. but i would do that to

  • Dave Humphrey

    Think he was more Pissed for been dropped kicked by Bryan because bryan had a go at him last monday night raw so Orton RKO him instead of arguing about it end off think when Orton will turn heal is when Sheamus is in a match and up and Orton comes running making out hes gonna clobber the other guy but ends up clobbing Sheamus that will be the start of orton turning heal
