5 Reasons why Roman Reigns faced Randy Orton after SmackDown Live went off the air
#4 Randy Orton is probably Vince McMahon's hired gun
I'm certain that by now, anyone who's reading this article knows that SmackDown went off the air with Roman Reigns knocking out Vince McMahon. So, the plan may certainly be for Vince McMahon to plan his revenge in the coming week, then. And who better for the boss to choose for revenge and retribution than the sadistic Viper?
In fact, if you think about it, Randy Orton is the perfect instrument of torture for McMahon to hire. Recall his feud with Jeff Hardy that involved Orton pulling on Hardy's ears first with his fingers and then with a screwdriver. It was probably the grossest thing I've seen on television in a while.
I mean the natural candidate for WWE to book in this role would have been Daniel Bryan. But Bryan is injured and Orton is just the right fit, in my opinion.
