Fans have been waiting for the Randy Orton return for the last couple of shows now, and he has yet to make an appearance. The belief is that WWE is holding it off because they simply have yet to find a place for him on Fast Lane. If they are unable to get an opponent for the former world heavyweight champion, then his return might be delayed until after the pay per view. Management does not want him brought back without a story line.

As soon as he made his return to WWE at the live events over the weekend, the belief was that Randy Orton was going to make an appearance on Monday Night Raw this week. There were actually plans in the works for that to happen, but management decided to pull the angle because they came up with a better story involving Edge, Seth Rollins and John Cena, which resulted in the return of The Authority. Orton showed up after the cameras went dark.
