WWE Summerslam 2022 main event in jeopardy due to Randy Orton’s injury?

0

Wrestling
Observer
had
earlier
revealed
that
Randy
Orton
has
been
given
a
major
role
during
the
summer,
including
a
chance
to
challenge
the
Undisputed
WWE
Universal
Champion
Roman
Reigns
for
the
titles
at
the
biggest
event
of
the
summer.

But
the
latest
update
from
Fightful
Select
suggests
that
Orton
may
be
taking
a
break
during
the
summer
schedule
as
he
has
been
dealing
with
a
back
injury
for
some
time
now.

The
exact
nature
of
his
injury
is
still
unknown
but
it
is
something
which
Orton
had
to
nurse
before
the
WWE
Tag
Title
Unification
match
with
Riddle
against
the
Usos
last
month.

That
was
the
last
time
we
saw
the
14-time
world
champion
on
TV
as
he
was
taken
out
by
Roman
Reigns
and
The
Usos
via
a
post-match
attack.
At
that
time,
it
was
thought
to
be
a
kayfabe
injury
to
get
him
written
off
Raw
and
Smackdown
appearances
for
the
time
being.

However,
there
is
more
to
the
story
as
the
injury,
which
is
a
real
one
has
worsened
in
recent
times
and
may
require
surgery
to
get
fully
healed.

“We’re
told
that
things
have
gotten
progressively
worse,
and
WWE
fears
that
Orton
will
be
forced
to
undergo
a
surgery,”
the
source
mentioned.

“WWE
sources
that
we
spoke
to
said
that
if
that
happens,
Orton
would
likely
be
out
of
action
the
rest
of
2022.
Thus
far,
the
exact
injury
is
unknown.”

If
the
top
superstar
is
ruled
out
for
the
remainder
of
2022,
then
WWE
has
to
find
a
backup
opponent
for
Roman
Reigns
at
WWE
Summerslam
which
is
a
tough
job
given
WWE’s
thinner
roster.

Fightful
added
that
Orton
hasn’t
been
factored
into
any
creative
plans
for
the
summer,
possibly
due
to
the
injury.
Now
his
tag
team
partner
Riddle
has
been
involved
in
a
feud
with
Roman
Reigns,
which
was
originally
planned
for
Orton,
according
to
Fightful.

Reigns
vs.
Riddle
will
take
place
on
tonight’s
episode
of
Smackdown
with
a
stipulation
that
goes
as
follows:
If
Riddle
loses
he
will
not
be
able
to
challenge
for
the
Unified
WWE
Universal
Championship
as
long
as
Reigns
holds
the
titles.
