– Capstone Publishing is set to release a series of children’s autobiographies later this year with titles on The Undertaker, Edge, John Cena, Batista and Randy Orton. Speaking of books, there are currently no plans to replace the scrapped Iron Sheik book with another title.
– For what it’s worth, SmackDown tag team Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder were backstage at this past Monday’s RAW but obviously neither were used.
– NBC’s Keith Olbermann mentioned the Randy Orton and Triple H storyline in his “Still Bushed” segment on last night’s show and flashed a graphic of Randy Orton. Here’s the quote from Olbermann:
“Number 3: Legacy-Gate, with wrestling. One of the top villains in the kaleidoscopic world of pro wrestling is Randy Orton. Monday at the WWE Raw event in Kansas City, Orton handcuffed another wrestler, then picked up the other wrestler’s wife, then dropped her on her head, then kissed her! Orton got loudly booed. Then the promoters played a video tribute to the troops, including a message from…Mr. Bush. According to reporters, Mr. Bush got more thunderously booed even than Randy Orton.”
