WWE star Randy Orton’s return to WWE could become a reality as it was reported that The Viper is closing on a return ahead of Money in the Bank.
14-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion played his last match on May 20, 2022, where he lost the RAW Tag Team Titles to the SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
Orton has been sidelined with a back injury since November of last year. It's been reported that he underwent surgery to fuse his lower back, but the procedure in question means that he'll be out for a long period of time.
However, Rev Theory — who sings Orton’s “Voices” theme song — just released an updated version of the track which has given fans hope that they may see The Legend Killer back in the ring soon.
It is all based on speculation as the latest release could mean nothing but the possibility that the track could be used by Orton when he returns cannot be ruled out.
It must be mentioned that in June, the legendary WWE wrestler Kurt Angle provided an update on Orton’s WWE return saying that he is training well but refused to give a date for the Viper’s return.
“He’s training, so we’ll see what happens; I don’t know. If he feels like he’s ready to go back, I think he might, but again he’s pretty well taken care of. I don’t think he need [sic] to. And I think the doctors have told him not to. But Randy will do what Randy wants to do,” said the WWE veteran.
Meanwhile in May, Orton’s father stated that his son may never wrestle again which created chaos in the WWE world.
"He's training, so we'll see what happens; I don't know. If he feels like going back or he feels like he's ready to go back, I think he might. Then again, he's pretty well taken care of. I don't think he needs to. And I think the doctors have told him not to. But Randy will do what Randy wants to do," said Bob Orton Jr. in an Interview with WristleBing in May.
No one other than Orton knows about his return and all his fans and people around the world can do is wait to see their favourite superstar in the ring.
