Orton has earned quite a reputation for himself in the WWE. Not only is he the legend killer, but his RKO outta nowhere is something to be feared. And fear could be what Damian Priest of the Judgment Day could be feeling. After the announcement was made, Priest made an interesting post on social media.

Priest wrote, “Yo @RandyOrton, answer your phone… bro!” While many fans claim that this could be their attempt to recruit Orton, others believe it could be out of fear. Orton has been out of the WWE for 18 months since May 2022. After over a year, WarGames would be the first match Orton takes part in. It is not a match The Viper is familiar with.

The potential feud with Jey Uso

Despite the overwhelming positive reaction by the WWE regarding Orton’s return at Survivor Series, fans are wondering what would be The Viper’s next move. After the WWE PLE, who would Orton face? Many believe it would be Jey Uso.

18 months ago, Orton and Matt Riddle faced The Usos on SmackDown for a Tag Team Unification match. This resulted in RK-Bros losing and Orton being shelved with an injury. Despite turning face, Jey was part of The Uso who injured Orton.

One take at a time

My passion for professional wrestling began when I saw Kane ripping the Hell in a Cell door off in the iconic 1997 match. I used to enjoy watching WWE re-runs at 5 in the evening when I got home from school. It was sort of a ritual for me.
