Following the completion of a 60-day suspension for his second violation of WWE’s Wellness Policy, Randy Orton is currently overseas with the SmackDown brand for this weekend’s tour of Asia.
However, with less than two weeks until SummerSlam, the main event superstar says he won’t be wrestling on the show.
Orton responded to fans Twitter on Thursday afternoon (Japan time), talking about the 12 1/2 hour flight, keeping in touch with his wife Samantha while away and more. When asked why he’s not featured on WWE’s promotional material hyping SummerSlam, he responded:
“because unfortunately I’m not working”
