RNN Update: WWE.com offers specifics on Randy Orton back injury

According to Prowrestling.net, WWE.com has posted an update on this back injury of Randy Orton’s, which I think is a pile of hot garbage soaked in the juice of lies, but who am I to jump to conclusions?

“Randy suffered a herniated disc on the L4-L5 level on the left side, and that’s resulting in pain and weakness down his leg.” Dr. Sampson stated in the story. “He’s going to need some time off for rehab, anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy.”

Yeah, well, *I* wanna talk to Sampson!


WWE debuts new house show stage set-up in Pittsburgh to packed crowd

Thanks to CM Punk for posting this picture on Twitter. See, social media is good! Of course, it just looks like Diesel is about to come to the ring, but whatever.

According to Prowrestling.net, WWE has created a new, house-show-only set — stage, ramp and LED lights — that was erected (hehe) for the first time last night at a house show in Pittsburgh, Pa. The news leaked thanks to Vickie Guerrero on Twitter:

Flying to Pittsburgh!!! I can’t wait to see the new stage setup tonight. See all of you there

And then thanks to photos posted by Prowrestling.net readers, Guerrero saw “all” of them there:

Jam-packed to the rafters!

It’s cool that WWE intends to make house shows more aesthetically pleasing, but if a tree falls in a forest, does it make a sound? My hope is they bring TV cameras to a handful of house shows and then show footage of “the live event experience” on Raw to entice fans to nontelevised events. Otherwise, they might as well join TNA in the stall where they flush money down the commode. -Eric
