Not so fast. A wrestler returning can make for quite the special moment as you get to see them for the first time in a good while. At the same time, it can open up a variety of doors for the promotion, as a major star can be slotted into a variety of roles. That might be the case sooner than later, but it seems that a potentially returning star might not be doing what he has been rumored to be doing.

Randy Orton has been rumored to be making a WWE return in the near future, possibly as soon as Survivor Series. A rumor has been circulating that Orton is planned to win a major championship when he returns, but Fightful Select is reporting that this is not accurate.

Opinion: That does make a bit of sense for WWE, as having Orton come back and immediately winning a championship is a bit of a stretch.
