According to the past few rumors, Randy Orton is still not medically cleared to return to the ring, which is odd considering the amount of time he has been away from WWE programming.
However, he was recently advertised to wrestle during WWE live events in late August, which shows that he will be cleared to return to the ring very soon if he hasn’t been already.
A report from RingSideNews.com is claiming that The Viper will be returning to WWE even sooner than we expected based on the last few rumors.
It’s now being reported that Randy Orton will be back in WWE before August 13th, but he will be wrestling during a live event in Hidalgo, Texas on the same day. It’s being advertised as “The Return of Randy Orton.”
The following was posted by “The Orton Girl” on Twitter, and it shows the full card for the show that night:
The brand split is going to create an interesting dynamic for Orton to return to because he could be booked as a face or a heel and return to Raw or SmackDown. It’s only a matter of time until we learn more information.
Do you think Randy Orton will return as a face or a heel?
