WWE NXT, Orton's Behavior, Wellness, Vickie's Future

Written by Richard Gray on May 14, 2010 - 12:15:20 PM

To what extent is WWE NXT scripted? Are the challenges predetermined, promos rehearsed, eliminations planned? Is there anything about it not decided by management? What was behind the triple elimination?

The entire show is scripted. Obviously crowd reactions play a part in what happens in the creative process but it is a scripted reality show. The triple elimination was all part of a bigger plan for the series. The series has been unorganized throughout as it has been revamped as the weeks go on. The original plan was to begin eliminating one Rookie each week until there was only one (this was even announced on TV). That has changed and WWE is trying to find a format that connects with their audience. The office is still high up on the concept despite the struggling ratings.

My question is about Randy Orton. I believe I read in a previous Ask WNW column where you mentioned Randy Orton is a completely changed man since marriage/being a dad. What exactly changed? I am sure you are referring to his behavior and manners. How was he before?

The word on Randy Orton is that he is much more mature since getting married and becoming a father. Orton used to have a reputation as being arrogant, disrespectful (especially to females) and even erratic. Orton has grown up and the WWE office has full confidence in him, which is why they recently signed him to a 10-year contract. There were concerns that Orton's behavior would derail his career despite his talent but that changed once he got married.

When a WWE Superstar fails a third Wellness test are they allowed back after certain amount of time?

Below is the exact paragraph from the WWE Wellness Policy:

In addition, a WWE Talent, who is terminated by the WWE for a third violation of the Policy, will be prohibited from returning to the WWE for at least one (1) year. If a WWE Talent, who is terminated for a third violation of the Policy, is permitted by the WWE, in its sole discretion, to return to the WWE, then (1) such WWE Talent must test negative for all prohibited substances under this Policy during the pre-contract screening process; (2) such WWE Talent will return to the WWE with a first and second violation of this Policy against his/her record; and (3) such WWE Talent must undergo the mandatory unannounced follow-up testing set forth in Section 8 C (1) of the Policy for a period of at least one (1) year after execution of his/her new contract with WWE.

Follow the link above for all your Wellness-related questions. It answers every question in detail including what exactly is banned, the use of marijuana and alcohol and more.

At the end of Raw this past Monday Vickie Guerrero "resigned." Was this just a quick storyline thing or is she going to be the permanent General Manager?

The WWE Creative Team is unsure what they want to do with the Vickie Guerrero character. They were high up on the reactions she garnered on Monday's Raw but there is concern she may take the summer off. Everything right now seems to hinge on whether or not she's going to be around this summer.
