-- There is an inside joke going around in WWE right now regarding Randy Orton. The ongoing plan is to have Orton win the 2012 Royal Rumble but once Vince McMahon is reminded that the event takes place in Orton's hometown of St. Louis, he'll change his mind. Of course, you can't ever put someone over in their hometown. See Jim Ross (Oklahoma), Beth Phoenix (Buffalo), etc.
-- We noted earlier that several CMLL, AAA and independent wrestlers worked tryouts with WWE when they were in Mexico this past week. Regarding CMLL, it's said 7 or so talents got tryouts and there were implied threats that if anyone was found to have worked a tryout, they would be suspended or fired from the promotion. So far there is no word if anyone who worked a tryout was disciplined.
-- Jack Swagger and his real-life wife Catalina White welcomed a baby boy named Knox Stribling Hager on October 17th. White is an indy wrestler. Congrats to the couple.
