There wasn’t an announcement made on ECW this past Tuesday night as to who would be facing Randy Orton for the vacant WWE Championship at No Mercy because they still hadn’t figured out what they were going to do yet. A meeting was scheduled for today to discuss the matter. McMahon is said to be very high on Randy Orton right now, feeling he is currently the hottest heel in the company. In a move that continues to make Orton look like the top candidate to get the title on Sunday, the WWE website has a video showing John Cena’s surgery with Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama yesterday. While the video mentions Cena’s injury as taking place during a hip toss with Mr. Kennedy, they show the attack by Orton afterwards to make it appear as if he was the one who did the most damage.
In what seems to be an annual error, Ticketmaster.com has a listing for a WCW World Championship Wrestling event taking place on Sunday, October 28 at the Columbus Civic Center in Columbus, GA. This is obviously an error as WCW is not coming back. The official Columbus Civic Center website also has a page on “WCW.” The site says they’re presenting something called ‘WCW: Entertaining the World featuring “Mother Nature’s Boy”‘.
WWE.com is running a poll on who you want to see win the WWE Championship on Sunday, and Val Venis is running away with it. At one point he had 50% of the vote. At the moment 48.05% of the people want to see Venis win the title.
The Ultimate Fighter last night did a 1.1 rating.
