Fans were left scratching their heads at WWE Backlash last week when Bray Wyatt laid a vicious beat down on Randy Orton backstage, leaving The Viper unable to compete.
It was revealed that the WWE didn’t allow Orton to participate in the scheduled bout as he suffered a mild concussion during his SummerSlam match with Brock Lesnar last month.
The company expected that Orton would be cleared in time for Backlash, but he wasn’t, and they were forced to change plans. This resulted in Kane defeating Wyatt in a no holds barred match.

However, NoDq.com have provided fans with a massive update regarding Orton’s condition, one that will have his fans excited for his anticipated in-ring return.
They’re claiming that Orton has officially been cleared by the WWE to return to in-ring competition on a full-time basis.
Orton was apparently cleared after SmackDown Live, as he worked a live event match in Missouri, and it’s being reported that took numerous bumps during it.
If he wasn’t cleared to return, he’d have never been in that match in the first place, let alone take the bumps so it seems as if he'll be ready to be back in televised action next week.
The number of injuries sustained by Orton over the last couple of years suggests that he’s coming towards the end of his wrestling career, but there are still plenty of feuds on SmackDown Live alone where the WWE can utilise him to the best of his ability.
It’s clear that we’ll continue to see back and forth action between Orton and Wyatt, with a singles match expected to happen at some point considering what went down at Backlash.
Not only that, a feud with AJ Styles has been touted ever since The Phenomenal One made his WWE debut. Some may even put this feud in the same bracket as Styles and John Cena, and it’s something will most likely be looking towards, perhaps next year.
