Randy Seems to be Frustrated and is Blowing off Steam on Social Media!
Following on from our breaking news stories about Enzo, Emma, Baron Corbin, Rusev and Mike Bennett all having backstage issues or heat, we can also now report that former 13 time World Champion, Randy Orton, is also said to be unhappy with the company. Unlike the other names, there is no heat on Orton himself, as he is now seen as a veteran and locker room leader. However, Orton’s high level position and the fact that he’s beyond the WWE hierarchy making an example of him, means that diluting Orton’s issues will surely be seen as a priority to WWE management. Especially considering Orton is indispensable enough to publicly acknowledge his gripes, which he has done several times over the last few months, including this week when he took a shot at the company booking him in a Punjabi Prison match.
Then no one would be able to see the fight because the view would be obstructed by the two walls of 'bamboo' -duh https://t.co/5YHv7PbbYT

Our sources have indicated to us that Orton is very keen to move to Raw, and work with Vince McMahon, preferably as a heel.
Orton was said to be happy last year whilst engaged in the Wyatt storyline which concluded at WrestleMania 33, however, this was a storyline primarily over seen by Vince McMahon who pushed for Orton to receive a high level push. Vince McMahon has been far less hands on with SmackDown since WrestleMania, other than rare instances, such opting to put the WWE Championship on Jinder Mahal.
