Randy Orton Taking Time Off After Survivor Series

Now that WWE Survivor Series is in the books, Randy Orton will be taking time off to be with his wife and their new daughter, who is due on Tuesday, 11/22.

Last month it looked like he might miss the PPV, SmackDown would have been missing a lot of star power since John Cena is currently away taping the second season of American Grit for Fox. Orton isn’t scheduled back until the 11/29 SmackDown Live show from Columbia, SC, according to the Wrestling Observer.

Orton’s wife Kim tweeted this photo three weeks ago, noting that she was 28 days from her due date, so the baby could come any day now.
