Randy Orton

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting Randy Orton is still expected to take time off right after Survivor Series until returning for the 11/29 WWE Smackdown Live tapings the following week in Columbia, South Carolina.

It was previously reported that Randy Orton was taking time off to be with his wife who is expected to deliver their baby on November 22nd. The Observer originally reported Orton was expected to start his break on Sunday, which would see him miss Survivor Series, but he has since been confirmed to be part of Team Smackdown in the Men’s Traditional Elimination Tag Match.
