Randy OrtonOrton to Miss 1,000th Raw?

WZ contributor Bob Bamber has noted that due to his 60 day suspension, Randy Orton is likely to miss the 1,000th edition of Raw, which takes place on July 23rd, and emanates from his home town of St. Louis.

There's always a possibility that WWE could claim Orton was officially suspended earlier than today, which could then clear him for Raw on 7/23, but that would mean the suspension would have to have gone into effect as early as May 22.
