WWE Summerslam 2021: June 21 was the last time when we saw Randy Orton in a squared circle. Being one of the top stars in the industry, not having him competing at WWE Summerslam 2021 sounds a bit eerie. Previously, it was reported that the 14-time World Champion would be returning to the Allstate Arena in Chicago on August 2, but it turned out to be just a rumor.
WWE Summerslam 2021: Randy Orton to miss Summerslam?
Randy was not event present in the arena on August 2 and his probability to appear before WWE Summerslam seems skeptical at this stage. According to Cageside seats, Randy Orton was scheduled to team up with Riddle and take on the Raw Tag Team Champions AJ Styles & Omos for a colossal Tag-Team Championship match. However, clouds of doubt loom over this match now.
WWE Summerslam 2021: Why Randy Orton has been missing all of a sudden?
Neither WWE nor Randy have commented on the current status of The Viper. With WWE Summerslam 2021 less than three weeks away, everyone is waiting for Randy’s arrival so that he could start a feud with AJ Styles & Omos heading into the PPV event.
Also, Riddle has been battling a lone battle against AJ Styles & Omos for quite a few weeks. Last Monday night, he collided with Omos and managed to show some resilience until the big man got the better of him. The live fans in attendance expected Randy to come out and help Riddle win the match, but nothing of that sort happened.
