Booker T's WWE In-Ring Return?, ROH Contracts, Rhodes/Orton
-- This is just a reminder that the UFC 135: Rampage vs. Jones airs tonight on pay-per-view. There is also boxing on HBO.
Booker T has competed in one match since assuming the SmackDown color commentator position in February. On the June 6 episode of Raw, Booker wrestled his first singles match for the organization in four years, gaining a victory over Jack Swagger via count out.
-- In addition to ROH talent not being allowed to work iPPV events for other promotions, ROH stars are also not being allowed to work with promotions that have any kind of local television. The contracts with Sinclair are exclusive to ROH when it comes to appearing on television and iPPV. They are still allowed to work indy dates when they aren't booked for ROH.
-- As noted earlier here on the website, Randy Orton's gruesome post-match attack on Cody Rhodes on this week's episode of SmackDown was eliminated from airings in the U.K. After The Viper strikes Rhodes with a rope-hung DDT, the international broadcast cuts to a backstage segment with Christian and Sheamus.
