WWE News: Randy Orton's return date revealed
After months of speculations over the return of Randy Orton, it looks like the plans for the Viper's return have finally started taking shape.
WrestlingInc who first reported about Randy being advertised for several live events in late August is now reporting that we might see him returning to in-ring action a little early. As seen in the tweet below, Orton is being advertised for August 13's live event from Hidalgo :
The tweet is labeling the event as the 'return of the viper' which can very well mean that the former WWE champion could miss the upcoming WWE draft on July 19th. There is no news about when can we expect to see him back on WWE television but it's also most likely to happen after the advertised live event.
Considering how WWE’s plans are mercurial at best and the level of importance the WWE seems to be giving to the upcoming draft, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Orton appears at the draft.
Orton reportedly suffered a shoulder injury during a live event in October last year. According to The Viper himself, his shoulder "had a repair 12 years ago that was destroyed." Since then he has been away from WWE television. Of late, several injured Superstars are making their return and Orton might just be the next guy to make his return.
