2015 saw a lot of WWE superstars suffer long term injuries and while many of them are only just returning, there is still one big name missing.
Seth Rollins made his return at Extreme Rules and John Cena will be back this Monday on RAW, but what about the Viper, Randy Orton?
Return of the Apex Predator
Orton has been out for some time and even saw WrestleMania 32 pass him by while he was sat out on the sidelines.

There have been several rumours about when Orton could be set to return to WWE TV and the fans are becoming impatient.
so much so that they're even asking the former Champion on Twitter when he will be back.
When Orton was recently asked however, he had a fairly interesting answer.
Claiming that he'll be back sooner rather than later, Orton clearly has his eyes set on a return to the ring.
Unfortunately for Orton though, his return will be different than every other time he has been out injured, as the WWE is a very different place right now.
With the so- called new era taking over and one of Orton's friends no longer with WWE, he will be walking back into a very changed locker room.
Old alliance gone
The recent release of Cody Rhodes has seemingly divided the WWE universe and Orton in particular has been vocal on the subject.
He was recently asked by a fan if he was upset about him being released and Orton claimed that Rhodes was one of his true friends at work.
Orton returning to WWE will give a much needed boost to the roster which is due to be divided in July when the entire WWE landscape changes with the Draft.
