Randy Orton has been absent from the squared circle since the May 20, 2022 episode of SmackDown. In that show, Orton and Riddle lost their RAW Tag Team Titles to The Usos.
Last November, Randy Orton successfully underwent back fusion surgery. As of now, Ortan has fully recovered. Doctors advised him not to return to pro wrestling. However, Bob Orton said in an interview that his son wants to come back.
Yesterday, a video of Randy Orton arriving at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida surfaced on social media. Sean Ross of Fightful Select confirmed that Orton was spotted at the WWE Performance Center this week.
Bodyslam reported that The Viper has visited WWE PC for the past three weeks to be ready for an in-ring return. They also noted that “Orton’s tour bus has been a weekly constant at the Performance Center during the past few weeks.”
There is no word on when Randy Orton will return.
