Orton I have no clue. It would be cool if he would work with Styles in a feud that puts him over upon his return, along with other guys like Ambrose, Owens, etc. I think it's time to transition Orton from one of the top guys to a draw who'll work with midcard guys and elevate them into the main event, similar to what Jericho has done since around 2011 or so.
Orton's been putting over talent for years

Re: Backstage Updates On Seth Rollins And Randy Orton Returning To WWE TV

Woohoooooooooooo Seth's returning soon I'm so excited for one of my three faves to come back! Then we'll have the whole Shield back on TV! I'm hoping for a face Seth, cos the crowds WANT to cheer for him they just felt they couldn't cos of The Authority If they did do Seth/Trips, that would be awesome.

As for Randy Orton, I'll be excited to see him back too. When I met him at Axxess last month, I told him I missed him and couldn't wait for him to come back and he said "me too, I can't wait to get back in the ring!" and seemed genuine when he said it.

Met Mox on March 28 2015/April 2 2016/August 20 2016/April 1 2017/April 7 2019!!
Met Roman on April 2 2016/April 7 2018!! Met Seth on March 31 2017/April 6 2019!!

March 2019 / November 2019. He never changes.

It's not something I'm denying, but I don't think we need Orton near or in the main event picture like he was in 2013 and 2014. I feel like he would be best suited for a role similar to how Cena held the US title and remained in the midcard, but still retained his drawing power.

Re: Backstage Updates On Seth Rollins And Randy Orton Returning To WWE TV

Reddit user FalconArrow (who was a completely legit insider, never got proved wrong) was talking about Rollins coming back in May (after Extreme Rules is our best bet, I guess). The role they pushed for him at the time was to dismantle the authority once and for all. We can probably expect Triple H to show up Before/during Extreme Rules anyway. Will beat up Shane or something.

They'll probably tease Shane vs HHH but Shane swerves trips and makes Rollins his opponent instead.

Re: Backstage Updates On Seth Rollins And Randy Orton Returning To WWE TV

Not putting anything past the WWE, but it would be ignorant and wasteful if they just blow by having a conclusion to the HHH/Rollins story. Rollins comes back as a heel/tweener (because he's going to get such strong ovations) and immediately gets a shot at Reigns due to never actually losing his title. THis is a big money match, so it probably takes place at Summerslam. HHH also takes on Shane at the same event, to get control back for the authority, and to get his win back so he can eventually job to Rollins. HHH turns on Rollins for failing The Authority, thrusting Rollins into a full fledged face.

It is correct that all returning wrestlers get nice pops and have a special aura around them upon returning. They should take advantage of that with Orton and throw him right into a big money match with someone like Lesnar. After promptly losing, he can turn heel and battle around in the mid-high card, while helping to put talent over. If he ever gets a World Title run again, it will be a transitional one.

Re: Backstage Updates On Seth Rollins And Randy Orton Returning To WWE TV

If I were Randy, I wouldn't be in a hurry to get back either. The only question is how will they misuse him this time around?

Great to hear about Seth. Hope this isn't the beginning of Orton's body completely breaking down.

The guy said he still have more 5-10 years left in him and he's nowhere near done. Randy loves the ring more than anyone on the current roster and he doesn't want to be away that long.
