Randy Orton isn't expected to return to in-ring WWE action soon but the most recent updates suggest that he'll be back sooner than later.

In the world of professional wrestling, few names command as much respect and admiration as Randy Orton. However, the past year has seen Orton sidelined due to a debilitating back injury, leaving fans concerned about his future in the squared circle, especially following reports that he might have to retire.

The WWE will be a whole lot better if Randy Orton makes his return.

Thankfully, recent updates from Kurt Angle, another legendary wrestler, have sparked hope among wrestling enthusiasts, suggesting that Orton's triumphant return to WWE may be on the horizon.

In a recent episode of The Kurt Angle Show, Kurt Angle offered a much-needed glimmer of hope for Randy Orton fans.

Angle revealed that Orton had made significant progress in his recovery and had successfully completed his rehabilitation. Speaking highly of his former opponent, Angle expressed optimism that Orton will return "pretty damn soon" and that he was doing much better. This update from a respected figure in the wrestling world reignited anticipation for Orton's return.

Randy Orton's absence from WWE television has been felt deeply by fans who have eagerly awaited his comeback. A severe back injury suffered during an assault by The Usos forced Orton to undergo a challenging back fusion surgery.

Following the procedure, doubts arose regarding his ability to return to in-ring competition. Medical professionals advised him against a hasty return, as per his WWE Hall of Famer father, Bob Orton Jr. This further raised questions about Orton's future inside the ring.

Randy Orton's ability to be an effective heel and babyface is what makes him such a compelling performer to watch.

Randy Orton's impact on the WWE cannot be overstated. With an illustrious 21-year career, Orton has established himself as one of the most revered and beloved professional wrestlers. His 14 world title reigns and numerous accolades are more than enough to solidify his status as a true icon even if he were to rewrite now. 

Prior to his real-life injury, Randy Orton had been teaming up with Matt Riddle as RK-Bro as the two captured the Raw Tag Team Championships and captivated the WWE Universe. More importantly, the partnership between Orton and Riddle had brought a unique dynamic to the tag team division, with their chemistry and success adding another chapter to Orton's storied career. The hiatus interrupted this exciting chapter, leaving fans eager to see how the RK-Bro story unfolds upon Orton's return.

The WWE Universe eagerly awaits the moment when Orton's music hits and the arena erupts in applause. His return will undoubtedly bring a renewed energy and excitement to WWE programming, as fans and fellow wrestlers alike are eager to witness the Apex Predator's dominance once again.

Wouldn't it be fun to see Randy Orton help Matt Riddle take the Intercontinental Championship off of Gunther at Money in the Bank?

Who knows? The return might come in July 1 at the Money in the Bank PLE in London. It's been rumored that Orton will appear at the event to help out his former tag team partner in his title match against Gunther.

This would certainly be one of the better ways to bring back a legend in Randy Orton and give him a chance to square up against one of the rising superstars in the WWE in The Ring General.
