Backstage Talk & Heat On Triple H, Lesnar/Orton Plans


Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

— While Randy Orton vs. Brock Lesnar was discussed for the SummerSlam pay-per-view at one point, WWE officials quickly moved on and started working on the Lesnar vs. Triple H program.

— There was a ton of discussion within WWE about Triple H accompanying Floyd Mayweather to the ring last weekend in Las Vegas. Most of the talk came from the fact that CM Punk wasn’t allowed to accompany UFC fighter Chael Sonnen to the octagon a few months ago in Chicago.

Part of the reason why Punk wasn’t allowed to work the UFC show was because they felt nobody would acknowledge Punk as a cornerman and it would hurt Punk’s perceived star power. Triple H accompanied Mayweather to the ring and outside of wrestling sites and WWE’s own website, he didn’t get much mainstream attention at all.
