The Grapevine (10/20/15): I Hear Orton's In His Bed

Good morning, everyone! Welcome to the Grapevine, where we round up the (technically unconfirmed) rumors from the wild world of pro wrestling that you may have missed over the evening.

We start the last stretch to Hell in a Cell today:

  • Is Randy Orton injured? Michael Cole announced on RAW just now that Orton is injured, possibly because of the Wyatt Family. Ambrose reinforced the theory as well. However, Orton was scheduled to be on the live events in Mexico last weekend and did not appear. No word yet on whether this is a storyline development, a shoot, or both. (Source: WrestlingInc)

We say: Looks like one of those worked injuries, but it's a little unusual that they'd work an injury angle one week before a PPV, and a kickoff match to boot. It's possible that he's just resting up at home, but if they were going to build up tension between him and Ambrose, it's a bad time for him to be off TV.

  • Tyler Breeze and Erick Rowan are backstage at RAW. We've already reported that Breeze is apparently due for his main roster debut, while it seems Rowan is ready to return from injury any time now. There are also unconfirmed rumors that Summer Rae could be Tyler Breeze's new valet when he debuts. (Source: WrestlingInc)

We say: We like Summer pairing up with Tyler; it seems to be a much better fit than Summer/Fandango, Summer/Dolph, and Summer/RuRu. But Erick Rowan? Is this possibly connected to Orton being away?

  • There are apparently those within WWE who still believe that Brock Lesnar could be facing Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania next year. We reported yesterday that Vince wants Rock vs. Brock at the show. (Source: WrestlingInc)


What do you think? Are you excited for the Hell in a Cell kickoff match? Do you want to see Summer Rae with Tyler Breeze? Do you want Brock vs. Austin at WrestleMania? Let us know what you think in the comments!
