I think it might have to do with him being away numerous times this year that he's been used to establish and put over others. The wellness thing was just giving them a better reason for it because he was already jobbing left and right late last year way before it happened. Orton is one of those who still has credibility despite being booked terribly bad, though. Now that Cena's done with, Orton is by far the best option from the roster to face The Rock excluding part-timers like Taker and Lesnar.
Hope Vince comes to his senses and pushes Orton again. He should be moved to Raw again because Smackdown is dead as it is.
