Randy Orton Filling In For Rey Mysterio, Another Match For Next Week’s SmackDown

– The dark match that took place prior to Sunday night’s WWE SmackDown tapings (airing 1/4) from Richmond, Virginia saw Natalya defeat Alicia Fox.

– Next Friday’s WWE SmackDown will feature an Intercontinental championship match between Kofi Kingston and Wade Barrett. Big Show will also defend the World Heavyweight championship against Alberto Del Rio on the show.

– Randy Orton will replace Rey Mysterio on next weekend’s WWE live events tour of Puerto Rico. Orton will team with Sin Cara to take on Primo and Epico. Rey Mysterio is currently off the road dealing with personal issues and was written off television during a recent edition of SmackDown when he was attacked by The Shield.

    I’m picturing Randy doing the 619……………and then a breaking news story is posted on here reporting Orton broke his back trying to do said move.

      Orton and his back are like Kevin Nash and his quad

    I thought Randy and Cara was hurt? Mysterio needs to hang up his boots. He’s worst than ever. Let Cara and Del Rio take it from here.

  • Aiii

    With Orton’s tendency to get fed up quickly by people mucking up and Sin Cara’s tendency to botch a bunch of spots… I’m not entirely sure this is the best of ideas on WWE’s part.
