– PWInsider confirms that there was some kind of injury to Randy Orton’s wrist at WWE’s Tribute to The Troops tapings on Sunday. No word yet on the severity of the injury but this is why Orton didn’t work last night’s RAW. Orton is advertised for tonight’s SmackDown tapings so we should know more later this evening.
– As noted, WWE officials are still planning on doing Ryback vs. CM Punk for the WWE Title. In an update, that match is currently scheduled for the January 14th RAW from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. WWE will be celebrating RAW’s 20 anniversary that night so they are giving Ryback vs. Punk a big stage.
– We noted last week that Mick Foley revealed a WWE Superstar asked for permission to use one of his signature moves. Foley says is he headed to tonight’s SmackDown tapings to pass that move on. Foley tweeted after RAW:
“Heading to #Smackdown in Bridgeport tomorrow, specifically to pass an iconic Foley offensive move down to a current @WWE Superstar.”
