This past Saturday, Randy Orton made his highly-anticipated return after being away for almost a year and a half. He was part of Cody Rhodes’ team during the WarGames match at Survivor Series.
Orton returned just in time to save the team from Judgment Day (Finn Balor, Damian Priest, JD McDonagh, and Dominik Mysterio) and Drew McIntyre.
On his way out from the ring after Survivor Series ended, as seen below on X, formerly known as Twitter, Orton revealed that he wants to be in the business for “10 more years.”

During the post-show media scrum, WWE CCO Paul “Triple H” Levesque discussed Orton’s comeback after an 18-month hiatus. “The Game” said,
“Just incredibly proud of Randy Orton, and when you have the kind of injury he had where things are touch and go, I’ve been there. Where they tell you, ‘You might never do this again.’ That’s a rough experience to be on the fight back. What he went through, to be able to have what he had done, and to be able to come back here tonight and have the moment that he had was just awesome. I’m so happy for him to come here, do what he did tonight, and it sounds silly, but as it being WarGames, sort of the pressure being off him a little bit to come back and be able to just be Randy Orton and do what he needs to do.”
