Note on Randy Orton missing Summerslam
WWE officials considered adding Randy Orton to the Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio World Heavyweight Title match at Summerslam. The feeling was that the feud didn’t need him included, and with the WWE Title match already being a triple threat, the call was made not to use him.
While Orton has just returned to WWE television after sitting out his 60-day suspension, he will be taking time off again shortly to film 12 Rounds: Reloaded for WWE Studios.
