Randy Orton took his new heel run to a whole new level on Monday Night RAW as he hit Beth Phoenix with a vicious RKO in the middle of the ring.

It came after he was challenged by Beth over the attack on her husband Edge, as fans wait to see when the Rated-R Superstar will return to WWE programming.

One man who has taken exception to pretty much everything Orton has done so far is none other than Zack Ryder.

The former Edgehead obviously has close links to Edge, and after this latest action, you’d have to imagine that it’s only a matter of time before Ryder decides to stick up for his friend by going after The Viper.


This could serve as the catalyst behind Edge returning to Monday Night RAW, but either way, it’ll be great to see Zack being involved in such a prominent storyline heading into WrestleMania season.

Ryder and Orton have had their fair share of disagreements on social media over the years, and we honestly believe they could tell a really intriguing story – even if it’s only in a one-off match.
