Why Randy Orton Missed SummerSlam, Update On Steven Austin’s “Redneck Island”

– As previously mentioned, Randy Orton is scheduled to be taking time off soon to film WWE’s new “12 Rounds” film in Canada, which is why he wasn’t booked at SummerSlam this year.

Many have speculated that Orton was still being punished for his second Wellness Policy suspension, however that’s not the case. PWInsider is reporting that the company didn’t want to put him into an upper-tier position only to pull him back out of it again to shoot the film.

– The season finale of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s “Redneck Island” show is this Saturday night on CMT. Austin said on Twitter Monday afternoon that the second season will begin shooting “in about a month.”
