Randy Orton “Rumblings” Backstage In WWE

Randy Orton

Since 2002, Randy Orton has been one of the vital members of the WWE roster but with the star now being out of action for ten months, there could be a sign that his return is coming sooner rather than later.

Randy Orton was last seen on the 20th of May 2022 edition of SmackDown when he and his RK-Bro partner Matt Riddle lost the Raw Tag Team Championship to The Usos. The Bloodline attacked Orton and Riddle after the match, writing the former WWE Champion off television.

Orton is believed to have been dealing with a back injury that had grown progressively worse which resulted in the star undergoing surgery in November 2022.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider Elite has now reported that in the last week, there have been “some rumblings” regarding Randy Orton in the last week. This is said to be notable as Orton had not been discussed in relation to any plans for “some time.”

In February 2023, a bootmaker revealed that Randy Orton had contacted them about making boots for his return, and while WrestleMania 39 looks to have come too soon for him, his highly anticipated return to competing in a WWE ring might not be too far away.
