Today it is known that Randy Orton is part of the Friday Night SmackDown roster, possibly being Roman Reigns' new challenger for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, with the fight expected to take place at WWE Royal Rumble, in January 2024.
Recently, some details have emerged about the creative plans for “Apex Predator”. Starting with Michael Hayes, who has been responsible for producing its segments and matches, as he is also responsible for everything related to Roman Reigns and The Bloodline.
Regarding his return on RAW, WWE used this to shut down any rumors about an interaction between him and Jey Uso, with both finally getting along. In the same episode, Orton ended his rivalry with Judgment Day, where he defeated NXT North American Champion, Dominik Mysterio.
It is expected that Orton will intensify his rivalry with The Bloodline in the coming weeks, building his rivalry with Reigns for next month, where both will face each other.
