On the latest edition of SmackDown, Randy Orton surprised fans when he decided to sign with the blue brand. While this was a massive disappointment for Adam Pearce, the opportunity to seek revenge against The Bloodline on the blue brand was what seemingly forced The Apex Predator to sign with SmackDown.
Naturally, Orton's decision to commit to the blue brand made Nick Aldis happy. The SmackDown General Manager was quick to get inside the ring and celebrate by raising Orton's hand. However, as soon as Aldis did this, he met with a devastating RKO from Randy Orton.
While the move by The Viper excited fans, it could force Aldis to put on his wrestling boots. In the coming weeks, WWE could book an angle where Nick Aldis could make his in-ring debut by being a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble Match. There, the SmackDown GM could eliminate Orton to seek revenge.
While Aldis is currently playing the role of SmackDown GM, he is certainly no slouch. The Englishman was a two-time NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion in the past, before his entry to WWE.
This potential move by Aldis could anger Randy Orton, and the duo could go on to face each other at WrestleMania 40. While the angle is speculative and unlikely to happen, there is a chance WWE might want to surprise fans and allow Aldis to compete inside the ring.
