Orton Comments on His Suspension and Return, Recent WWE Attendance

– Here are some recent WWE attendance figures:

* RAW on June 1st in Alexandria, Louisiana drew 5,300 fans for $150,000

* RAW on June 2nd in Mobile, Alabama drew 3,500 fans for $120,000

* SmackDown on June 2nd in Augusta, Georgia drew 4,500 fans for $120,000

* RAW on June 3rd in Birmingham, Alabama drew 5,500 fans for $140,000

* SmackDown on June 3rd in Savannah, Georgia drew 4,000 fans for $130,000

– Early this morning, Randy Orton finally commented on Twitter and said that his suspension ends in 50 days, which would put him back Friday, July 27th, two days before the reported July 29th. A fan asked Orton if he will be returning as a heel because of the suspension. Orton said “we can only pray.”

If Orton does return on July 27th, that would mean his suspension began May 25th, which was the night he appeared on RAW and laid The Miz out with a RKO. Orton was not used at the SmackDown tapings that week and his suspension was announced the next day, Wednesday.

Finally, a fan asked Orton why he was suspended. Orton replied:

“When I’m able to tell you, I will. Until then, don’t believe everything you read!”

  • pulgeezy

    Mizark henry lol how do u get your pecs to go all around your waist lmao

  • rko

    I knew orton didn’t belong as a face right after that rko he pulled on mizark henry and christian looked at him like a tool. Orton did a split in midair and followed up with whoooo. It just didn’t fit and looked gay. Heel orton needs to come back.

    “A fan asked Orton if he will be returning as a heel because of the suspension. Orton said ‘we can only pray.'”

    That’s a pretty hilarious and telling response. Looking at the product with regards to the writing and performance of the wrestlers, it looks like people don’t give a shit anymore, probably due to indifference, frustration, and low morale. For Orton, I totally see his “whatever” expression that he has in front of the camera, backstage, but serious about it.

    so could possibly be miz face, orton heel then, although i do like Miz as heel though, just needs more time and worthwhile storylines

  • SYM

    Its them Voices Randy.

    I’m glad that he wants to go heel. He’s much better on the mic, and a performer as one. A natural fit.

  • Mark

    Surely 60 days is punishment enough for him. Hes still very popular amongst the WWE Universe especially the reactions he gets from the crowd
