Lots Of Backstage WWE News On Orton/Y2J/RAW, Zeb Colter’s Injury, A NXT Firing & More


Just to recap a few things we posted last night as it’s
been so busy over the last few days:

— The reason that Chris Jericho and Randy Orton were not on this past
Monday’s edition of RAW was because WWE gave the two some time off. As noted,
both are scheduled to return at next week’s RAW, where Orton will be a guest on
Jericho’s “Highlight Reel” segment.


— Zeb Colter has been telling friends that he suffered an injury as a result
of the stiff kick he took from Rusev at the SummerSlam pay-per-view. There is
also a story making the rounds that claims Colter was injured outside the ring
as well.

— We reported recently that NXT star Shaun Ricker was released from the
company. Ricker reportedly had heat with WWE management regarding some social
media issues. One of those issues was based around how he would re-tweet many
messages from fans about how he should be on television.
