In recent months, WWE star Randy Orton appears to came back to the top of the federation. The Legend Killer is now making both personal and professional growth and has achieved several great victories: many think that the wrestler's exploit was born from the feud against Edge, a series of matches that he perfected and led to growth of both wrestlers as Superstar of the highest level also in 2020.
On June 14 the two met at Backlash in The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever and the Canadian wrestler suffered a heavy injury. The growth of Randy Orton is before the eyes of all WWE wrestlers and Tom Colohue of SportsKeeda has clarified the main reasons for this.
The latest on Randy Orton and his role in the backstage
WWE has apparently identified Orton as the next major WWE Champion opponent Drew McIntyre, a choice that reflects The Viper's position in the federation's locker room.
According to what Ringside News reports, the wrestler has had a big change in the backstage in the last few months: before he was considered only an agitator, the one who created mess from the top of his experience in WWE.
Now, however, Randy Orton is considered totally the leader of the dressing room of Raw, a person who with his veteran attitude acts as a hen and tries to help others. According to sources close to WWE, Paul Heyman recently had a strong discussion with Randy and explained to him that he must collaborate in the creation of new Superstars and that his role in WWE is also fundamental for this.
The choice to bring Randy Orton to be a Contender for the WWE Championship also depends a lot on this reason and the future of the wrestler in the federation appears increasingly rosy. Randy Orton has recently been involved in a big match against Big Show, but WWE has preferred to oust the two from the official Extreme Rules card and insert them instead in the Main Event of the episode of Raw following the WWE PPV.
The main reason for this choice lies in the large drop in ratings seen by the red show in recent weeks and Vince McMahon, together with his collaborators, has decided to use two wrestlers of this caliber to try to raise WWE ratings.
Meanwhile Shelton Benjamin broke Raw's 14-year-old streak. As reported by the account, in fact: "The new 24/7 WWE champion Shelton Benjamin managed to ring a single win at Raw by playing R-Truth. It is Raw's first 1 vs 1 win since Super Crazy's defeat in 2006 ...
before the Iphone was introduced, before the premiere of The Big Bang Theory and before Twitter started using hashtags." In practice a much more important victory than it seems, that of Shelton Benjamin against R-Truth in that of Monday Night Raw, which has certainly brought a breath of fresh air against one of the most technical athletes in recent history WWE, which has almost never been used in the last period except in some tiny corner or curtain in the McMahon rings.
