– The current plan right now is to have Steve Austin referee the World Title match between Chris Jericho and Batista, regardless of the voting, so take that for what it’s worth. With Shawn Michaels and Randy Orton being the other two choices, it’s safe to say those two won’t be performing on the card.
– As far as the Santino Marella match goes, there’s no word yet on what direction WWE is wanting to go. Roddy Piper wrestled what was billed as his last match on April 18th of this year, just a day after is 54th birthday. So there’s no telling if the angle is being booked for Piper or not. The WWE Hall of Famer did work an angle with Santino earlier this year that really had no ending to it. Goldust, better known as Dustin Rhodes, is a possibility since he hasn’t worked for TNA as Black Reign since back in the Summer. The likely choice would be The Honky Tonk Man, considering the gimmick they have going with the Honk-A-Meter and Santino calling himself the “Greatest Intercontinental Champion of All-Time.” We do know that as of about a month or so ago, Honky had not been contacted by WWE yet to come in and work the angle.
