Backstage Update: Why Randy Orton Wasn’t On SummerSlam


Source: The Wrestling Observer

WWE was considering adding Randy Orton to the Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio World Title match at SummerSlam. The feeling was that the feud didn’t need extra “star power”, and with the WWE Title match already being a triple threat, the call was made not to use him.

While Orton has just returned to WWE TV, he will be taking time off again shortly to film 12 Rounds: Reloaded for WWE Studios.
