Orton made his comeback after almost a year out through injury as Chris Jericho's guest on the Highlight Reel.
The segment proved to be very interesting as Orton and Jericho traded verbal shots at firstly each other, and then towards Brock Lesnar.
Orton made the claim ahead of Summer Slam, that it would take anywhere between 15 and 20 suplexes to reach Suplex City, but only one RKO to make it to Viperville.
The segment concluded with Orton delivering an RKO out of nowhere on Jericho as he looks all set for his showdown with Lesnar in one month's time.
Orton looks to be in good shape now that he is back in the WWE and he will need all of the RKO's he has to beat Lesnar next month.
Long awaited return
The return of Brock Lesnar is imminent and given the recent events surrounding the Beast and his return to UFC, it should be as controversial as ever.
With the recent reports of Lesnar failing a drugs test and of course his victorious return to the Octagon, Lesnar comes back with a lot of momentum.
Lesnar vs Orton may not grab the headlines that last year's Lesnar vs Undertaker match grabbed, but it will still be a highly anticipated match.
