Prior to the back injury that is currently keeping him sidelined, Randy Orton was embroiled in a feud with The Bloodline, as he and Matt Riddle faced The Usos in a tag team title unification match. The villainous faction eliminated The Legend Killer in a post-match beatdown, and he has been absent from WWE programming ever since.
Ric Flair stated on the latest To Be The Man podcast that Randy Orton and Roman Reigns have not competed against each other in a long time. He mentioned it can be a possible match for the Showcase of the Immortals.
I respect him a lot, but God, what do you do with Randy [Orton]. He’s the best worker in the company. He’s coming back. He’s not even mentioned in the WrestleMania process and he’s never wrestled Roman [Reigns]. Not for the title. I mean, I’m pretty sure of that. Randy is going for #15 [World title], right?Ric Flair On To Be The Man
When it comes to standing across the ring from one another, Roman Reigns and Randy Orton are no strangers to each other. The two men have gone one on one several times while also competing in several multi man matches.
