Backstage Three-Hour RAW News, Randy Orton, Foley-Ambrose Feud
- The current plan once RAW moves to three-hours in July is to spend the first 50 minutes or so hyping up a top-of-the-hour match on both TV and Twitter, then kick it off at 8:55pm to run through the top of the hour. WWE will go with another big match or segment right around 10pm and the final angle will close out the show during the overrun as usual. RAW will apparently have a more structured feel to it.
– Randy Orton was scheduled to face Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio in a three-way at the July 24th SmackDown live event from Kansas City until it was changed yesterday afternoon. The match is now just Sheamus vs. Del Rio. Orton remains advertised for some World Heavyweight Title matches this summer.
– Mick Foley posted the following last night after the SmackDown tapings about Dean Ambrose:
“Finally had a talk with @TheDeanAmbrose . Unique type of cat. We’ll probably never exchange holiday cards, but it was good to clear the air.”
Ambrose didn’t reply to that tweet but did post the following late last night:
“It hurts to talk today again. My voice gives out all the time. Im not sure why.”
