Below are some top WWE & AEW news stories of the day, involving Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and CM Punk.

• The originally planned main event of SummerSlam 2022 was Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. However, WWE had to change their plans due to Orton’s major injury.

On last night’s RAW, Orton said he has unfinished business with The Bloodline and is coming for them.

WWE is now advertising Orton for this Friday’s SmackDown at the Barclays Center in New York.

Orton might kick off his feud with The Tribal Chief this Friday, by going after Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso, as Roman currently isn’t scheduled to appear this Friday.

Speaking of this Friday’s SmackDown, Logan Paul will make his first appearance on WWE TV after winning the United States Championship.

• According to PWTorch, an AEW wrestler (who wasn’t upset about CM Punk’s departure from All Elite Wrestling) told them that they believe Punk will have a smoother experience in WWE.

This wrestler attributed this expectation to WWE having better leadership at all levels compared to AEW. However, the source noted that morale in the AEW locker room has improved since Punk left.

This AEW wrestler expressed confidence in Triple H’s leadership in WWE, suggesting that he will be a greater influence than AEW President Tony Khan.

The source also mentioned that Punk may have an incentive to behave well in WWE and prove that he wasn’t the cause of issues behind the scenes in AEW.
