The Viper Randy Orton made his much-awaited return to WWE, last week on Raw. Orton kicked off the episode of the Red-brand and was welcomed by his partner Riddle. But the duo were interrupted by the WWE Raw Tag Team Champions AJ Styles and Omos.
A war of words led to a main-event match being announced between Orton and The Phenomenal AJ Styles. While Orton picked up the win, the feud seemed far from over. Additonally, things got interesting when The Viper Randy Orton delivered the three most dreaded letters in sports entertainment to Riddle, R-K-O.
But Orton needs to ignore Riddle and focus on the massive challenge that lies ahead of him, on the upcoming episode of Raw. The Apex Predator will be up against The Giant Omos. He has an enviable record, although with limited appearances.
During his time on the main roster, Omos has appeared in a singles match on two occasions and has emerged victorious in both of them. One win against Erik and Riddle each. Additionally, he has also been one-half of the Raw Tag Team Champions since making his in-ring debut. But if there is someone who can overcome Omos, it is the Legend Killer Randy Orton.
Can The Viper Randy Orton still be added to the WWE Summerslam card?
There were doubts regarding Randy Orton’s appearance on “The Biggest Party of the Summer”. But the hopes of the WWE Universe rose up when Orton returned just in time to be added to the card. Initially, it seemed like him and Riddle would team up and go after the Raw Tag Team Championships.
But things took a sudden turn when Randy Orton RKOed Riddle in the final moments of Raw. This slightly reduces the chances for their Tag Team match at WWE Summerslam 2021. But we can still hope for an announcement on the upcoming go-home episode of Raw for Summerslam.
