Randy Orton has been on the treatment table since the late stages of 2015 when it was revealed that he had suffered a shoulder injury whilst putting out the garbage.
Orton has since undergone surgery and rehabbed the shoulder and is scheduled to make his WWE return in late April or early May, but it has been reported that The Apex Predator will be in Texas for WrestleMania - could he even be a part of proceedings?
There's always room for a star of Orton's billing at WrestleMania, but where can the former Legacy leader fit in?
SHANE VS UNDERTAKER?
Randy Orton had a major problem with both The Authority and Seth Rollins before he was taken out of action and he would love nothing more than to help Shane McMahon defeat The Undertaker and force them out of power once and for all.
There is no reason why Orton shouldn't make an appearance and show his allegiance to Shane so that when he returns he will already have some kind of favor with the new boss.
If Randy is at the point now where he is just a month away from an in-ring return, then it is possible that he is in good enough physical condition to be a part of a run in or an interference spot.
He is scheduled to be a part of a WrestleMania VIP Access on Sunday April 3rd, which means he will be in the close by if WWE requires him.
THE AUTHORITY OUT OF POWER?
Of course, it is also entirely feasible that 35-year-old could once again return as a heel and be the one to do Vince McMahon's bidding, after all, he himself has already been a victim of The Undertaker at WrestleMania.
There are more than a few superstars who have been shortlisted to be likely to help Shane in his quest to own the company, these superstars include Dolph Ziggler, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and the recent addition Zack Ryder. Randy Orton, or possibly John Cena appear more likely given their previous issues with The Authority and they carry the necessary star power to carry it off, too.
It has become somewhat obvious that the match will have interference of some kind because it is inside Hell in a Cell which means there are no rules that prevent other superstars becoming involved.
It still remains a mystery as to who else WWE could have up their sleeves, but with WWE hoping to top last year's WrestleMania event, you can bet they still have a lot of surprises ahead of the event.
