Report: Smackdown Changes to Be Made After Orton’s Return

Nick Paglino

WWE is reporting that with Randy Orton cleared to return to WWE TV as of today, changes are expected to be made at Smackdown events which were initially implemented as a result of Orton's suspension.

John Cena, CM Punk and Triple H, all notable Raw stars, have been making appearances at Smackdown events to help fill in the void left by Orton's 60 day absence from WWE. With Orton now returning, it's expected that CM Punk will resume his feud with Daniel Bryan at Raw house show events, and John Cena will no longer be making dark appearances at Smackdown tapings.

It's being said, however, that Triple H will likely continue making dark appearances during Smackdown taping commercial breaks, as he's been coming out to hit the pedigree on a number of the brand's heel talents.
