Is Randy Orton Becoming Unreliable?

According to an article I read about half an hour ago, Randy Orton might be taking some time off in order to deal with some sort of personal issue. The article doesn't provide any details on what this issue is, only that it doesn't involve an injury or Wellness Policy violation. The report also doesn't state when or if Orton will be taking this time off.

To me, it seems like Randy Orton is becoming someone who is more difficult for WWE to count on. Orton has been injured on a relatively frequent basis for a while in which he's had to take some time off. He had to take some time off due to popping his shoulder out of place at the Tribute to the Troops taping, the same trick shoulder that he injured in a motorcycle accident several years back. Before that, I think he suffered a mild concussion that kept him out of the ring for a few weeks as well. Then there's his 2nd Wellness Policy violation last year that had many questioning Orton's future in the WWE, both fans and WWE insiders alike. Orton is also someone that, allegedly, has a long history of attitude problems backstage resulting in several incidents over the years.

I'm assuming that this time off, it if does indeed happen, won't be until after WrestleMania. If it's before WM, then this will certainly put a crimp in WWE's plans for the show.

All we know for sure is that he shows up and does his job. We know absolutely nothing for ourselves about his current relationship with the WWE officials (McMahon, etc.). Who knows if he's reliable or not?

Re: Is Randy Orton Becoming Unreliable?

Agreed with poster above, to say he is 'becoming' is completely wrong content. Instead it should of been 'Is Randy Orton Unreliable' so I can respond firmly 'Yes'!

Orton needs to find himself IMO. Have the Guy take a good 6 months off and return as a heel.

Top 10 all time favorites:

Stone Cold Steve Austin
The Undertaker
Shawn Michaels
Chris Jericho
Brock Lesnar
Kurt Angle
HHH
Edge
CM Punk
Kane (98-04)

He doesn't feel comfortable with the current character he's portraying. He said in interviews countless times that he feels much better portraying a Heel persona, which WWE doesn't want to do because they feel Sheamus is not ready to be the face of Smackdown, and Ryback would 'drop' even more if he got drafted, thus why he's kinda in a "I don't give a fuck" mode lately.

Pretty sure the brand extension doesn't exist anymore.

I'm pretty sure that's just down to the WWE not wanting to draw out their big feuds on the B show.

Yeah that is what it feels like whenever he gets a segment on TV. His face character has nothing much going on other than intensity and a nickname.
