Everyone’s favorite Legend Killer, Randy Orton, is not available right now. The 13-time World Champion is currently out injured, and is not expected for a couple of months. Heck, he might even miss Summerslam.
Still, when he does return, he will be a happy, healthy, and hydrated Randy Orton. We all know what that means. A happy Randy is a motivated Randy, and very few people can match Orton when he’s motivated.
Since he’s returning soon, he’s going to need some people to fight. Here are some people who could bring out the best of the Viper.
It still amazes me to think that AJ Styles and Randy Orton have only fought each other once. And that was more than a year ago. It was such a quality match that it’s a wonder the two haven’t had a proper, honest-to-goodness feud yet.
Should Styles still be holding the WWE Championship by or after Summerslam, Orton would be a great challenger for him. It’s been nearly a year since Orton’s last WWE Championship match, and he’d be a welcome addition to an already stacked main event scene. And neither man has to turn; Orton is a dick who attacks everyone, and Styles is just a really angry guy.
They could also feud without the title, but then one of them would really have to turn. Thing is, both men are so over that they will always be cheered, even if they slaughtered a dog right in the middle of the ring and then set its corpse on fire.
Both men are getting old (but Orton’s younger by a couple of years), so if this feud is going to happen, it needs to happen soon.
Also, Phenomenal Forearm into an RKO.
