Big Plans for Randy Orton at WWE SummerSlam

A recent report from WrestleTalk suggets that Randy Orton will be involved in one of the top matches at WWE SummerSlam.

According to Louis Dangoor of WrestleTalk, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre is Orton’s likely opponent. As Dangoor points out, given WWE RAW’s relative lack of main event heels, the match-up makes sense.

“A few weeks ago, I reported that Randy Orton had been pitching to work with members of the NXT roster at SummerSlam, most notably Adam Cole & Tommaso Ciampa. However, I’ve been told that due to the shortage of #WWERaw heels, Randy Orton will likely be facing Drew McIntyre,” said Dangoor.

Reports are that with the shortage of heels on the red-brand, and Orton’s original planned opponent Edge out with an injury, the Viper would be the most likely candidate to challenge the Scottish Psychopath for the world title.

“In fairness, I was also told Orton’s immediate thoughts after learning Edge was injured was to pivot to either Adam Cole or Tommaso Ciampa at SummerSlam. Not sure on current plans, but common sense says Randy is top heel/best matchup for Drew,” said Alex McCarthy.

Reports of Orton feuding with former NXT champion Tommaso Ciampa were also discussed as a possibility after the two traded shots on Twitter. WrestleTalk claims that this could still be on the table for the future, along with a potential bout against Adam Cole. Orton has been pushing for both matchups behind the scenes.
