How Much Time Orton Will Miss Due to Filming

According to The Wrestling Observer, Randy Orton will indeed be taking some time off from WWE TV, as we have been reporting, to film the WWE movie "12 Rounds: Reloaded."

While it's possible that Orton could make sporadic TV appearances, he is expected to return to the road full-time after November 1.

Why Laurinaitis is Not Wrestling Dark Matches

John Laurinaitis, who had previously been working dark matches teaming with Big Show against John Cena, has been pulled from those matches within the past month due to injury.

Although he was removed from his position as WWE's Executive Vice President of Talent Relations back in June, Laurinaitis is expected to return to TV as an on-air character in the coming months.
