-WWE is back in Cape Town, South Africa at Grand West Arena for a second show today. The advertised talent pool includes Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, Rob Van Dam, Randy Orton, Sheamus, Jack Swagger, Justin Gabriel, Wade Barrett, Big E Langston, Fandango, A.J. Lee, and Kaitlyn. For Orton's sake, here's hoping the second night is a little less eventful.
