WWE SummerSlam is right around the corner, and a recent report from WrestleTalk suggets that Randy Orton will be involved one of the top matches on the card. According to Louis Dangoor of WrestleTalk, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre is Orton’s likely opponent. As Dangoor points out, given WWE RAW’s relative lack of main event heels, the match-up makes sense.

Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT said that “common sense” would suggest a McIntyre/Orton match at WWE SummerSlam.

Another recent report suggested that Orton is interested in facing Adam Cole and/or Tommaso Ciampa; Dangoor writes that these matches could still potentially happen down the road.
