Since he is injured, Randy Orton has been removed from the upcoming WWE tour of Europe. Management had already advertised Orton as being part of the show, so they felt the need to make it up to fans who had already purchased tickets. To do that, the front office booked Alberto Del Rio as a replacement. Del Rio recently returned to World Wrestling Entertainment and is viewed as an international star.

That is why it comes as a bit of a surprise that management is having Randy Orton talk about his past drug addition on an upcoming DVD. There were rumors that were floating around for years about Orton, and his loyal fans denied that there were any drug issues.

Due mainly to the negative response from fans, WWE has been forced to keep Roman Reigns away from the top spot. That is the reason why he is stuck in a feud with the Big Show at the moment. At one point in time, management had plans for Reigns to work a stall program with Kane. That feud is most likely to happen if they change their minds about having Reigns work a triple threat title match with Seth Rollins and Randy Orton at Payback.

He reportedly yelled and berated people for bothering the performers, who were understandably fatigued. Orton has had several incidents before with the fans, as he feels that privacy should be respected.

Some rather interesting news are coming out of the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. Since it was taped in London, there was a delay in the airing in the United States. WWE took that opportunity to edit up some things to their favor. They made sure to tone down the huge reaction that Antonio Cesaro received from the fans. They used that pop and made it seem like it was Randy Orton that the audience was going wild for.

In a rather interesting bit of news, a lot of fans in attendance at Monday Night Raw were said to have left before the main event even started.

In the second match at Wrestlemania, Randy Orton defeated Seth Rollins. The match started out a bit slow, but towards the middle of the match, it became obvious that WWE did that by design. Once the pace picked up, fans in the audience started really getting into it. Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury were both taken out by a double apron DDT to the floor by Orton. A ridiculous flying RKO spot ended the match and sealed the victory.

On Monday Night Raw, fans witnessed Randy Orton being in cahoots with The Authority once again. That has led some to believe that he pulled a heel turn just one day after making a return at Fast Lane to attack Seth Rollins, Big Show and Kane. As of right now, WWE still has plans on Orton being utilized as a baby face. They simply wanted to show the friction between Orton and Rollins again in case some fans have forgotten after four months.
