Backstage News From WWE SummerSlam


- The go-home sequence of John Cena hitting the Attitude Adjustment on Big Show only for CM Punk to throw Cena out of the ring and steal the pin was included on a script that I received information from late Sunday afternoon. The weird match restart that preceded it was not.

- The total time in all of the scripts I was told about called for the pay-per-view to be just under two and half hours. The feeling was filler would be added, however, it was also ultimately decided against.

- There was considerable talk within WWE about Dolph Ziggler "cashing in" his Money in the Bank briefcase on Sheamus after he beat Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam. Obviously WWE decided against doing it and I haven't heard the reason why. I will have my reaction to Ziggler going under to Chris Jericho later on Richard's Backstage Blog.
