Randy Orton was not on WWE RAW this week and many fans wondered why he was absent. Riddle still referenced him and even spoke to The Viper in spirit, but it might be a while before RKBro gets back together.

According to a report from PW Insider, Randy Orton is out of action with an unknown issue. It was not confirmed what his injury is, but he is not cleared to perform at this point.

WWE Raw Tag Team Champion Randy Orton was not at this past Monday’s Raw taping, PWInsider.com has confirmed.

The word making the rounds backstage was that he was not “cleared to perform.”

Randy Orton’s last match was against AJ Styles on September 20th. It is not known why Orton is out of action. Due to the nature of confidentiality, it is very difficult to 100% report such information.

We’re hoping that whatever is keeping Orton out of action will get cleared up soon. He is 1/2 of the RAW Tag Team Champions with Riddle, so they will have to handle that issue. The WWE Draft is also starting on SmackDown this week. It will be interesting to see how WWE handles Orton’s draft pick, because he adds a ton to any roster he is on.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
