WWE News: Randy Orton to guest star in upcoming USA Network show Shooter

Welcome news for Randy Orton fans

Could Orton be coming back soon?

Randy Orton has been off WWE programming for quite a while now, after last being pulled from the Hell in a Cell PPV in October of 2015 due to a shoulder injury. But it would seem that doesn’t prevent the WWE’s Apex Predator from kicking a** elsewhere.

His latest foray into television sees him play a guest role in USA Network’s upcoming action thriller, Shooter, as a former Navy Seal and the leader of a militia group. The lead role is played by actor Ryan Philippe who had also sent out a tweet with Orton earlier in the day.

The WWE has recently signed on Smackdown to the USA Network in addition to Monday Night Raw, and if Orton’s guest appearance is a sign of things to come, more such mainstream crossover opportunities could present themselves to WWE Superstars due to the tie-up that both companies enjoy.

Either way, fans of the Viper would be hoping that this is a sign that a return to in-ring action is not too far away.
