WWE May Have Leaked Some Major News About Randy Orton



Since WrestleMania 33, Randy Orton has successfully held the WWE title. However, he faces his first title defense since the event on Sunday night against Jinder Mahal. According to 411 Mania, Orton is expected to retain the title.

Sportskeeda’s Billi Bhatti reports that they have sources claiming that Randy Orton is unlikely to lose his WWE title this weekend at Backlash, and his title reign should not be expected to end anytime soon. According to the report, sources inside the WWE are claiming that “Orton is Vince’s guy,” and he will be holding onto the belt for the time being.

With Orton being one of Vince McMahon’s favorite wrestlers, it puts him in the position for a lengthy title run. He is one of the fan favorites which gives even more reason for him to retain the belt at least at this event. The WWE could drag this out for a few months possibly heading toward SummerSlam.

Beyond Mahal, there really isn’t another competitor for the belt. AJ Styles is currently in a feud with Kevin Owens for the U.S. title. Baron Corbin isn’t viewed as being ready for a shot at the belt and Rusev isn’t back yet either. Ultimately, Orton looks like he is in store for a long title run.
