Randy Orton hasn’t been on WWE television since RK-Bro lost the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship match to The Usos on SmackDown a couple of weeks ago. Orton and Riddle were attacked by The Bloodline after the match on the blue brand. The Viper needs back surgery, but that didn’t stop WWE from advertising him for a live event.

WWE’s Apex Predator is being advertised for an upcoming house show. The July 16th Saturday Night’s Main Event will take place at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center in Tallahassee, Florida. The shoo-in WWE Hall of Famer is currently on the bill.

Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan, Riddle, Seth Rollins, and Becky Lynch are also advertised to appear on the house show. It seems like it will be a great night, but the former Evolution member likely won’t be there.

Orton was written off WWE television so that he could heal his back injuries that have been bugging him for some time. Word is that he also needs surgery and will be out for a while. Orton and Riddle are heavily anticipated to split up once the 14-time world champion returns to WWE television, but we’ll enjoy the love fest for now.
