Although not confirmed, there is talk that Orton may even be pulled from Backlash this Sunday where he is scheduled to compete in a Fatal Four Way along with John Cena, Shawn Michaels, and Edge.
A few people have noticed that commercials airing to advertise the main-event at Backlash have not included Orton, however given WWE’s history of advertising screw ups, this could just be a simple mistake.
The third generation star is no stranger to controversy in WWE after being accused of harassing former WWE employees Amy Weber and Rochelle Loewen, as well as being listed in a Sports Illustrated for obtaining the drugs clomiphene citrate and the steroids stanozolol, nandrolone, anastrozole, oxandrolone, and testosterone.
We will keep you updated on the situation, but it is clearly serious for Orton.
