Why won't WWE turn Orton?
- Last week's episode of Smackdown earned a 1.96 cable rating with 2.69 million viewers.
- WWE still has not decided who will join Michael Cole on commentary next week on RAW. JBL will be overseas mountain climbing so he will be unavailable.
- The referee involved in last night's RAW main event was Brad Maddox. He is a two-time FCW tag team champion and former FCW 15 champion. He also worked as a referee in developmental.
- Randy Orton is very vocal behind the scenes about wanting to work as a heel. WWE officials want to make sure Sheamus is established as the top babyface on Smackdown before they turn Orton. It is believed he will be heel by the end of the year.
