Randy Orton is set to return to WWE in the coming weeks. According to a report by WrestleVotes, Orton has almost recovered from his injury, and his name even popped up in the creative discussions backstage in WWE. His official return date to WWE has not been revealed yet.
WrestleVotes exclusively told GiveMeSport that Randy Orton was extremely disappointed whne he missed WrestleMania 32 because of an injury. He is quite passionate about performing at the Grandest Stage of ‘Em All. So if he is fit, WWE may not hold him back for the RAW or SmackDown after WrestleMania 39, but instead, he can make an appearance at the SoFi Stadium on April 1 or 2.
Fans should note that even if Randy Orton makes his return at WrestleMania 39, he is unlikely to have a match on the show. He may participate in a special segment with a celebrity or even have a WrestleMania moment with the show’s host, The Miz.

The Bloodline members attacked Orton brutally, putting him through the announcer’s desk. After the attack, Orton’s tag team partner Riddle even hinted that The Legend Killer’s career might be over.
The reason behind Orton’s absence from ring has been his back injury. He underwent surgery and is on his way to achieving full fitness.
