Updates on Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar Returning to WWE TV This Summer

Randy Orton

– Brock Lesnar is currently scheduled to return to WWE TV for the July 19th WWE Draft live SmackDown episode in Worcester, MA. Lesnar was originally supposed to return a few weeks later but the Brand Extension apparently changed those plans.

– Regarding Randy Orton, we’ve noted how his WWE return was said to be imminent and how he’s now being advertised for WWE live events in August. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Orton’s shoulder is still not 100%, but is improving, and that he’s still about a month or so away from training for a return.

The original timeline had Orton in Orlando at the WWE Performance Center in mid-June, train for a few weeks and then be ready for a ring return around this time.
