Even More Backstage Heat on Orton
According to F4WOnline.com, there is reportedly more backstage heat on Randy Orton due to comments he made on Twitter following his 60 day suspension. When asked by a fan whether or not he would be returning as a heel, Orton responded by saying "we can only pray."
It's being said that WWE is firmly behind Orton as a top baby face in the company, and became upset when he publicly shared his dislike of his current TV role via Twitter. As previously reported, despite the ongoing issues between him and management, Orton is expected to be pushed as a top guy upon his return to WWE TV.
