The following contains a *spoiler* regarding Friday’s WWE SmackDown broadcast:
SmackDown star Randy Orton will return to television this Friday night and exact revenge against Wade Barrett for putting him out of action several weeks ago by throwing him down a flight of steps.
Orton appeared at Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings from Tuscon, Arizona and attacked Wade Barrett before the two were shelled to wrestle. Orton chased Barrett out of the ring, which prompted WWE officials and other superstars to come out and stop Orton. Orton hit RKO’s on everybody in sight, including Tyler Reks, Curt Hawkins, one of The Usos and Trent Baretta.
This is a similar spot that WWE ran over the weekend, when Orton returned at Sunday’s live event from Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Orton was out of action for a month following Wade Barrett’s attack.
