You might miss him. There are a lot of wrestlers on the WWE roster and some of them are pretty noteworthy. Those wrestlers have often been around for so long that they are going to make an impact just by being on television. They are often such big stars that you are going to notice them missing, which is going to be the case for the time being with one of the bigger stars WWE has to offer.

Randy Orton was absent from this week’s Monday Night Raw with no explanation or reference to his whereabouts. According to Wrestling Observer Live, Orton will be gone from WWE “for a little while”. There is no word on why Orton will be gone and there is nothing to suggest that he has any health issues. Orton participated in the men’s Royal Rumble match on Saturday, making it to the final five before being eliminated by Brock Lesnar, the match’s winner.

Opinion: I’m curious why Orton will be out of action, but this could be as simple as him having a vacation built into his contract. It isn’t like Orton is someone who needs to be heated up very much as soon as he gets back. Orton is likely to have something big once he gets to his WrestleMania build, which is likely to be one of the more interesting matches on the card.

What do you think of Orton? What should he do at WrestleMania? Let us know in the comments below.
