As noted earlier, the WWE officials were “in a panic” over the Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H storyline and were considering having the match take place at June’s No Way Out pay-per-view. In an update, F4WOnline.com reports that the company is considering it for No Way Out or July’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view. The match was originally planned for SummerSlam in August.
Moving the match up would extend the time between Lesnar appearances on WWE TV this year since it’s believed they only have him for around 24 dates this year with the rest of the dates being used next year for WrestleMania season. The main reason for keeping Lesnar out until the SummerSlam match was because they had already burned through 5 dates between WrestleMania and Extreme Rules.
- WWE will be releasing new DVD’s on Shawn Michaels, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio and Kofi Kingston as part of the new Superstar Collection that launches later this year.
- On the way back from promoting WWE in Japan this past weekend, Alberto Del Rio stopped in China to take part in a press conference announcing the SmackDown brand’s return to The Oriental Sports Center in Shanghai on August 11th. WWE will be running Tokyo, Japan on August 9th and 10th. Reports coming out of China suggest that WWE is considering doing regular tours of China.
