Big Update: Randy Orton’s WWE Suspension


Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Here are some notes on Randy Orton’s WWE Wellness Policy suspension:

– At this time there is no word on when Randy Orton actually failed his wellness test. The word is that a few people high up in WWE knew about the situation days before it was announced on the WWE website.

– The WWE writers didn’t learn of Randy Orton’s suspension until it was posted on

– Following Chris Jericho’s suspension, WWE was looking to build a PPV match between Orton and Dolph Ziggler.

– The feeling is that Orton’s second suspension puts WWE in a bad place. WWE has built around Orton for years and he is considered one of the company’s top three stars. He is one violation away from a WWE release, and in the past, WWE has been hesitant to push stars with two violations.
