Randy Orton has been out of action since the May 20th 2022 edition of WWE Smackdown when him and Matt Riddle dropped the RAW tag team titles to The Usos. Orton ended up having lower back fusion surgery.
In September of 2023, speculation about Orton’s potential return to WWE started up again due to a video of him outside the WWE Performance Center in Orlando that circulated around the internet. Regarding Orton’s return, Steve Carrier of RingsideNews.com noted the following earlier this week…
“Randy Orton’s WWE return is coming, and his fans should be prepared. We have been told that Randy Orton’s return is described inside creative meetings as ‘soon.'”
On Friday, Fightful.com also reported that WWE is hoping to have Orton back by the 2023 Survivor Series PLE. Survivor Series takes place on Saturday, November 25th from Chicago, IL.
