Re: WWE: Rise of Glory
I'll probably run this once a week for RoG just to update you on news etc. It will most likely be posted Saturday's.
WWE RAW News; Kane’s attack actually scripted? WWE Announces World Tour, More Info Inside…..
Kane’s Attack on RAW Actually Scripted;
It has been told through a secure resource that Kane’s attack on Lillian Garcia during the broadcasting of WWE RAW was actually scheduled to happen, the whole ‘This wasn’t scripted’ was in fact to bring back the element of ‘Shock TV’. From a very positive response from the crowd we expect to see more of this sort of work in the weeks to come on RAW and perhaps even Smackdown!.
The whole segment was the main focus of this week’s show, showing although Kane has lost two Pay Per View matches straight that he is still the monster inside. Lillian’s cut was in fact a blood capsule that was lined in the piece of glass. Vince McMahon was believed to be impressed on how well the segment worked on TV, he hopes this will draw more fan attention over the coming months with the re-emergence of ‘Shock Television’.
Shelton Not Scheduled to Win Monday;
This past Monday we saw Shelton Benjamin pick up his first singles title in the WWE, however many internet rumors sites were actually promoting Randy Orton to win the match against Shelton. It’s believed that WWE is leaking out false information to the internet sites to stir up more interest in the company.
Brock Lesnar’s Return to the WWE, Which Brand?
As aired during RAW this week there is was a hype video for one former WWE Superstar, Brock Lesnar. This was the first we heard of this news, as WWE has become much more secretive over the past 3 months since the new writers came in. It is not know which brand Brock will sign with although obvious indications show he will be signing with RAW due to his video being aired there, but it will be official come SummerSlam that he will have made a decision.
