WWE League: Week 23

0 of 6

    So this Monday night saw some actual matches for the next PPV announced. Why not? After all. there's only one more Raw before the event arrives.

    SmackDown saw the Orton/Christian feud evolve further, so maybe this new PPV won't be as bad as I first thought. And will Orton finally surpass Edge this week and become the best performing Superstar of 2011?

    Welcome to Week 23 of the League.

    Orton has to wait another week before topping the table it seems as the combined efforts of Sheamus and, ironically, Christian hand out a loss to the World Heavyweight Champion. This week however sees yet another suprise top competitor as Sin Cara wins two matches on SmackDown in back to back contests.
