Orton Looking To Take Time Off, Another Adamle Related Incident, European Tour
source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter
— The final numbers for WWE’s tour of Europe are in. For 20 events, they averaged 8,750 paid and $725,000 per event for a total of $14.5 million. This was the company’s biggest money making tour in history.
— At Tuesday’s SmackDown/ECW taping in Atlantic City, a fan was heckling Mike Adamle big-time. He was asking Adamle how many mistakes he was going to make on the show. However, a WWE tech guy put an end to the heckling by confronting the fan and saying, “There will be none of that tonight and if I hear one more word out of you, I will throw you out of here.” Security also confiscated an “Adamle Sucks” sign.
— Randy Orton has asked management for some time off from house shows. The story is that he’s burned out. However, he still wants to work television and pay-per-views. Orton is penciled in for some top pay-per-view matches over the next few months. Orton’s wife Samantha is expecting their first child in July, so you can see why he’d ask to be home more. Anyway, it is not known if his request has been granted, or for how long, although he was pulled from WWE’s upcoming tour of Mexico.
