- The official website of the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York is no longer advertising Randy Orton for a SmackDown taping taking place at the venue on Tuesday, September 25. A No DQ Triple Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Championship pitting Sheamus against Orton and Alberto Del Rio was originally scheduled. The website now has Big Show replacing The Viper in the match.

The taping coincides with Orton beginning filming for WWE Studios’ 12 Rounds: Reloaded at the end of the month.

- In honor of Night of Champions on Sunday, the official WWE website takes an up-close look at seven rare championships. Belts highlighted include “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s “Smoking Skull” WWF Championship, the WCW Tag Team Championship, The Rock’s “Brahma Bull” WWF Championship, The Fabulous Moolah’s Women’s Championship, Undisputed WWF Championship, Lay-Cool’s bifurcated WWE Women’s Championship and the WWF World Tag Team Championship.
