Randy OrtonRandy Orton finally made the first public comments on Twitter about his suspension. A fan asked if he was going to return as a heel and he replied:

"We can only pray."

Orton was also asked why he was suspended and he replied with:

"When I'm able to tell you, I will. Until then, don't believe everything you read!"

Orton also noted on Twitter his suspension has 50 days left which means it is over on July 27th. By that ending date, his suspension began on May 25th, the same night he gave an RKO to The Miz on RAW.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Randy Orton's suspension of 60 days is going to cost him about $200,000. Reportedly there has been discussion to keep him off of television past SummerSlam to teach him a lesson so he misses out on the big pay-per-view and big payday. If he was to be kept off television for another four weeks, missing SummerSlam, his financial losses will be somewhere around $275,000.
