Randy Orton stunned the WWE Universe this past week on SmackDown LIVE when he turned on Kane during The Big Red Machine's match against Bray Wyatt.

The two kicked off the episode this week, and with the match nearing it's conclusion, Orton's music hit and he made his way down to the ring.

After Luke Harper backed down, who had interfered earlier on in the match to help Wyatt, it looked like he was leaving his partner to fend for himself against both Orton and Kane.

However, The Viper struck from out of nowhere with an RKO, but he hit it on Kane, not Wyatt, allowing his former rival to pick up the victory.

When asked about his actions, Orton just said 'if you can't beat them, join them', whilst Kane was also asked about The Viper's action on Talking Smack.

The veteran said Orton will have to pay for his actions, but he is not sure whether or not that means he has joined the Wyatt family.

Well, according to Cageside Seats' rumour page, Orton might not be joining the Wyatt family, but he is likely to turn heel in the next few weeks.

After making his return to WWE with a feud against Brock Lesnar, Orton then turned his attentions to Wyatt, but clearly WWE officials feel he is better when he is a heel, a sentiment Hall of Famer Jim Ross agrees with.

JR posted in his blog that Orton is always a better character when he is a heel, and it looks like he is going to get his wish.

Although he's not expected to officially join the Wyatt family, a heel turn is planned, despite reports suggesting he will be facing AJ Styles in the near future.
