Here’s also asking fans to tweet about their favorite #JerichoRAWMoment.

– There is talk within WWE that Randy Orton may need some time off soon to deal with a personal situation. No word yet on what the issue is, but it has nothing to do with the Wellness or behavioral issues that have kept him out of the ring in recent years.

        Christian, to… let’s say… challenge Barret for the Intercontinental Championship???

      • ratedRsuperstar

        but christian cant make the audience go crazy like edge do

        • dealwithit

          but he cant wrestle!!

    • Simba

      Nope Edge said there was a death in his family so he will not be able to attend.

      No Edge is not coming, he cannot wrestle so leave it alone.

    turn heel first you son of a bitch i hate waiting

      If he issues outside of wrestling that need to be taken care of that needs to be handled first, thats more important. Also, if he did turn heel first then he’d turn and take time off so it would have no impact.

        dont be a bitch. dirtsheets made this one up too.

        • http://www.facebook.com/dan.kincaid.7 Dan Kincaid

          they can’t put anything on the internet that isn’t true, haven’t you seen that commercial with the French model?

    • Weis

      He can come back as an heel

  • pwnez

    If this is true, I don’t expect Orton to turn heel until after WrestleMania. Maybe we won’t see Sheamus vs Orton afterall.

      If it keeps Orton out of Wrestlemania, I wonder if we’ll get Sheamus vs Del Rio. You know, since we enjoyed it those other couple hundred times.

    Edge is not coming to show up because there was a loss in the family

  • ahndaewoong

    First Rey, the Alberto and now Randy. Something’s strange is going on with all of these personal issues top stars in WWE keep having.

      “personal issues” has always been another way of saying drug problem, without actually saying drugs

      • morrisonfanone

        They said it wasn’t Wellness.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

        no it’s not personal issues is with their families.

  • John Cena Rules

    Orton should retire

    • morrisonfanone

      I just think he should take lessons to freshen up his promos. They’re stiff as anything.

  • FOLEY_is_GOD

    I wonder if Orton will be back in time for ‘Mania

  • morrisonfanone

    At first I was hoping for him to leave forever, but if something’s wrong with Sam (his wife) or Alanna (his daughter), I take it back.

  • Darth

    Is it just me or is that tweet by Jericho like a subtle hint? Of course this is Jericho so there’s really no telling..

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Randy-James-Crawford/100001407556559 Randy James Crawford

    If Randy Orton wins the Royal Rumble he doesn’t need to show up until The Elimination Chamber.

    “Can’t wait to see who’s gonna show up tonight…”
    JeriTroll strikes again.

  • Dirtsheets Get It Wrong

    This Randy Orton piece is COMPLETELY MADE UP by the dirtsheets, like the countless other posts on this site.

    Pay no mind to them. He isn’t going anywhere

      shut the hell up. Everyone knows sescoops has NEVER been wrong about a story, they hangout backstage. how do you think they get info? Sescoop can call Vince up right now and find out what’s gonna happen on raw tonight!

      • Ho Kim

        Dude stop getting so mad, “shut the hell up”

        • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

          you must be new here.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he had to take time off for his “illegitimate child” that he had a year ago.
