It appears that Randy Orton will be making his return to WWE Raw sometime before SummerSlam.
Orton’s return happened after Matt Riddle lost to John Morrison thanks to a distraction caused by AJ Styles and Omos after Omos destroyed Riddle’s scooter.
After the match, Styles and Omos continued the attack on Riddle as the fans chanted Randy Orton’s name. Styles looked over to the entranceway to see if anyone would come out but there was no sign of Orton.
For unexplained reasons, Orton has not been on Raw for several weeks but it looks like WWE is planting the seeds for Riddle and Orton to challenge Styles and Omos for the Raw Tag Team Titles at SummerSlam.
