Randy Orton has not wrestled since May 2022 due to recovery from a back injury. In recent months though, rumors have circulated that WWE is hoping Orton will be back in the ring around Survivor Series. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE believes Survivor Series is the “suggested time frame” for Orton’s return.

Opinion: I don’t think it’s much of a secret that Orton is trying to come back at Survivor Series, even if that might not be the best move.

He’ll never have another chance to have this kind of success and that can be very tempting.
