“1,700 driving miles in 3 days has given me a much clearer image of what I am willing, and NOT willing to do in WWE. Fog is finally lifting.”
– WWE’s DVD on The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Streak that comes out in a few months will be a four-disc DVD and three-disc Blu-ray.
– The feud between Kane and Randy Orton will end at WWE’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view. No word yet on what’s planned for either Superstar. At last word, Orton wasn’t scheduled for a World Heavyweight Title feud until later this year.
– As seen on Tuesday’s live SmackDown special, Kane attacked “Cowboy” Bob Orton Jr. and then attacked his son Randy Orton. WWE’s website posted a storyline update saying that both Ortons were taken to a local medical facility on Tuesday night for treatment.
According to the article, WWE Dr. Michael Samson examined them before releasing them Tuesday night. Bob Orton suffered bruising and abrasions and the doctor requested x-rays and possibly an MRI to provide further diagnosis. It was later noted by Josh Mathews that Orton’s dad suffered abdominal injuries.
Regarding Randy Orton’s injury from the attack, they wrote:
“The onslaught Randy Orton suffered to his back and abdomen, thanks The Big Red Monster’s metal pipe, also left visual bruising and abrasions. With the history of WWE’s Apex Predator’s back problems – including a herniated disc injury that took him out of action – Dr. Samson stressed that every precaution will be taken before a more concrete diagnosis is determined.”
– WWE’s website has a new storyline article up looking at how Lord Tensai has won his RAW matches by referee stoppage. WWE doctor Chris Amann talked to the website about referees stopping the matches:
“The referees have been instructed by the physicians and athletic trainers on how to recognize signs and symptoms of being no longer able to compete, such as head trauma or other injuries. So if any Superstar shows those signs and symptoms, the match is stopped immediately per protocol and then the Superstar is examined by our physicians and athletic trainers.”
Referee Charles Robinson spoke about how Tensai is “a beast cut from a different cloth” and said during the RAW squash over Yoshi Tatsu, Tatsu was showing signs of head trauma so he stopped the match.
– As noted before, WWE will be bringing back the No Way Out pay-per-view this year on June 17th from East Rutherford, New Jersey. The new No Way Out DVD synopsis indicates a format change for the event.
Rumors a few months back were that No Way Out would feature more cage matches, similar to TNA’s Lockdown pay-per-view. The synopsis below indicates cage matches with various stipulations. Here’s the DVD synopsis:
“After a three year hiatus, WWE No Way Out is back and recharged! The annual pay-per-view that became notorious for its brutal, main event Steel Cage Matches gets reincarnated, but this time the Superstars of WWE will take the thematic event a step further, as they find new and innovative ways to prevent opponents from escaping. All stipulations in place, which may include Lumberjack, Strap, Chain, Steel Cage, Handcuff Matches or more will ensure no respite from the chaos inside the ring.”
