• 2 Major Randy Orton Plans Canceled In 2022 Due To Injury
14-Time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton is currently out of action with a back injury.
He hasn’t wrestled since May and was written off WWE programming after a vicious storyline assault by Roman Reigns.
Orton had to undergo surgery, which resulted in the original plan for the SummerSlam 2022 main event being canceled – Roman Reigns (c) vs. Randy Orton for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
However, this isn’t the only plan for Randy Orton that got canceled this year.
WWE Officials didn’t think Orton would be out of action for this long, and had plans for him to turn on his tag team partner Matt Riddle as soon as he returned, but that plan has been nixed because Orton’s injury turned out to be more serious than originally thought.
Here’s what Wrestlevotes reported:
“When Randy Orton went down, the plan was for him to come back and immediately turn on Matt Riddle.”
There’s no timetable for Orton’s return as of this writing.
