Backstage Feelings on WWE Tapings, Orton’s Movie Work, More
– Randy Orton noted on Twitter that he will be away filming 12 Rounds: Reloaded for up to 2 months total.
– Jim Ross is now confirmed to commentate at next week’s RAW from Sacramento, California. As noted, JBL will also be returning next week.
– In an update from last night’s WWE tapings in Tulsa, the match between Antonio Cesaro and Derrick Bateman may have been a dark match and not a Saturday Morning Slam match. Brodus Clay vs. Epico is confirmed for SMS.
– The feeling among some talents backstage at last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings was that taping Superstars, Saturday Morning Slam, Main Event and SmackDown in one night is too much. The tapings felt long and drawn out.
