Fans are waiting for the moment when Randy Orton finally returns to WWE and adds new memorable moments to his legendary career. Orton is a former Grand Slam champion in WWE. Before getting injured in the first half of 2022, he had a fantastic storyline with Matt Riddle in the tag team division of the company.
Known as RK-Bro, Orton and Riddle captured the WWE RAW Tag Team Championships but lost them to The Usos in a match where both RAW and SmackDown Tag Team Championships were on the line. The Bloodline attacked Randy Orton after the match and wrote him off TV because of a real-life injury.
According to rumors, the date when Randy Orton returns to WWE will most likely be in 2023. So, here are five possible storylines for The Viper when he comes back.

Roman Reigns is in dire need of new challengers for his WWE Undisputed Universal Championship. Surprisingly, he has not put his title on the line against Randy Orton during his long reign thus far. If Orton comes back around the Royal Rumble show, WWE should use the opportunity to book the match on a big stage.
2. Randy Orton resumes his feud with Bray Wyatt

Many fans do not wish to see the end of RK-Bro, but a WrestleMania 39 match between Orton and Riddle could steal the show. This betrayal could happen on the road to WrestleMania, setting up a big clash for the Show of Shows.
