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 WWE.com.
– 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.
