— Santino Marella vs. Jack Swagger was taped before RAW this week. The match will air on WWE Superstars and more matches for the show will be taped at tonight’s WWE SmackDown tapings.
— As reported Monday, a WWE spokesperson told TMZ.com that online reports of Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst being kicked out of the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California, the venue for WWE’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event Sunday night, for displaying an obscene gesture while he shown live on camera “are 100% FALSE.” Rather, he went backstage on his own accord to apologize for his action, according to the spokesman. On the contrary, multiple WWE sources have told us that Durst was asked to leave the arena by WWE officials. We are confident in our report.
Kevin Dunn, WWE Executive Vice President of Television Production, reportedly “blew a gasket” when Durst flipped the middle finger at the camera.
Durst had claimed on Twitter that he wanted to beat traffic following the show, writing, “I was leaving to beat the traffic! Haha, security escorting me out?? WWE is family. hahaha. Is this really a rumor? Amazing. My boys at WWE are cracking up! Note- never leave early to beat traffic!” He then deleted the message.
