Wrestlemania 34 is approaching closer to us as we gear for the buildups of the 31st edition of Royal Rumble event. The hype ups for this event has already begun with WWE confirming the Universal Championship match in a triple threat manner where Brock Lesnar will be defending the title against Kane and Braun Strowman under no-DQ capacity. Also, the first-ever women’s Rumble match will also be hosted on that night.
However, as per the recent reports, there might be some bad news heading into the Wrestlemania season as one of the regular main-eventer of this particular show might miss the dual brand PPV. The concerned name is none other than Randy Orton who is said to sit out the 34th edition of Wrestlemania from New Orleans, Louisiana.
The speculations began with a report from ProwrestlingNews.com which suggested that going forward, the Apex Predator of the WWE might be having a lighter schedule. He is being advertised to appear on the upcoming shows on a bi-weekly basis. This too is continuing until February 11th, 2018 after which no televised edition of Smackdown Live or any WWE Live Events is advertising him.
It is also to be noted that the Viper was not ready to feature on several dates including the Holiday shows of the company and the shows during the New Year, as well. Based on this suggestions, there are speculations ongoing that the youngest world champion in the WWE history might not feature in the biggest event of the year.
The source also pointed out that Randy Orton is not featuring in any of the posters of Wrestlemania 34 which is yet another reason for the rumors. For now, he is scheduled to appear on the post-Wrestlemania 34 episode of Smackdown Live which makes the fans believe that The Viper will be out of action during the Wrestlemania 34 season and will make a comeback once it’s over.
The die-hard fans of Orton can only pray that The Viper gets added to the upcoming events in post-February and March as WWE schedules keep on changing, every now and then. There’s a chance for the 13-time world champion to take a break in order to film a movie as revealed by him on the Edge and Christian podcast during the time span of Wrestlemania.
