While they have managed to confuse some within the internet wrestling community, WWE still has every intention of doing a complete face turn for Randy Orton in the coming weeks. They have been testing out the audience at live events by having the former world heavyweight champion working against Bray Wyatt, a heel that does not have an opponent to practice with since he is currently involved in a Wrestlemania feud with the Undertaker.

A match between Randy Orton and Seth Rollins is still heavily expected to take place at Wrestlemania. That much is known. What is not known, however, is who management will have coming out on top after the bell rings. Many backstage in WWE are pushing for Rollins to be put over, so that he can be moved into a title program with Roman Reigns. However, there are some that are pushing for Orton to get the win because he is making a comeback.

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.

For much of the past year now, WWE knew that they wanted Seth Rollins to have a spot on the Wrestlemania card. They simply did not know who he was going to work with. Management seems to have found a candidate in Randy Orton. While the match should be high profile, the feeling backstage is that this is simply a filler feud for Rollins. The company is simply killing time with him before they figure out when to pull the Money in the Bank trigger.

As expected, Randy Orton made his return to WWE over the weekend during Fast Lane. He immediately set his sights on the man that he will most likely be wrestling against at Wrestlemania. Unless something drastic comes about to change up the plans, Orton and Rollins are currently penciled to work a high profile match at the pay per view together. The rivalry will need to be built up again because Orton was forced to take a couple of months off.
