– Randy Orton is scheduled to finish up with WWE in the next two weeks to begin filming the second installment of the WWE Studios production “12 Rounds.” Principal photography is set to begin on 9/26 in Vancouver.
– Daniel Bryan was praised once again for his work in the Anger Management segments with Kane and Harold in this week’s WWE Raw. I’m told any Bryan detractors left in company management are all but gone as most, if not all, feel comfortable booking him in any situation. Not only are WWE officials high up on him because of his in-ring but there is a large level of respect for him for getting his character over.
– While readers were by large high up on it, I’m told The Miz was not well-received on commentary backstage. One source said some felt he showed a lack of personality in his work.
– I’m told CM Punk has pushed the idea to get Antonio Cesaro over and push him. There are still preliminary plans to program Cesaro with Christian when he returns.
