– Randy Orton is scheduled to return to the live events schedule around November 1st but that could change depending on how filming goes on 12 Rounds: Reloaded.
– John Laurinaitis is currently injured which is why he hasn’t been working dark main events the past few weeks.
– Ric Flair and his wife Jacqueline Beems are currently going through a divorce. This would be Flair’s fourth. There has been talk of replacing Vickie Guerrero with Flair as Dolph Ziggler’s mouthpiece but there’s no word yet on how serious those talks are. Flair would be legally able to work for WWE on September 10th.
