F4Wonline.com is reporting WWE creative didn't learn of Randy Orton's suspension until it was posted on WWE.com.
They had already been working on developing a feud between Orton and Dolph Ziggler on Smackdown.
It is thought that WWE knew for a few days Orton would have to be suspended and that's why WWE added John Cena to Smackdown tapings. However, WWE also booked Orton strong on Monday's RAW where he gave an RKO to The Miz and had Dolph Ziggler teasing his feud with Orton.
