Sometimes things just happen. With so many wrestlers on the WWE rosters, you are going to run into some strange situations from time to time. Some of these might be a little bit weirder than others but you also might not even know what is going on. That seems to be the case with one of the bigger names in WWE today and now it seems to have been taken a step further.

According to Fightful Select, Monday Night Raw’s Randy Orton has been placed on the Disabled/Inactive list in WWE in recent weeks. However, there is no word on why that is the case. There is nothing to suggest that the two sides are having any kind of issues. It is not clear when Orton will be back, though he is hoped to be back on television by the August 2 Monday Night Raw.

Orton has not wrestled since the June 12 edition of Monday Night Raw when he lost to John Morrison in a Money In The Bank qualifying match. Prior to his departure, Orton had been teaming with Riddle as part of RKBro. While Orton has been on the shelf, Riddle has been paying several tributes to him, including using his finishing maneuvers and having Rick Boogs play Orton’s theme song on guitar.

Orton is certainly worth the wait. Check out what he can do when he is around:

Opinion: I’m not sure what is going on here but Orton being gone has been a bit noticeable. One of the most important things about Orton is that he can be put into a feud with anyone and get some results, which is more than a lot of other wrestlers can say. Hopefully everything is ok and he is back sooner rather than later, though we might not know what is wrong in the first place.

What do you think of Orton? What should he do when he gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
