Hold on to your butts, Cagesiders, because Randy Orton's 60 day suspension for his second Wellness Policy violation is officially up.
Indeed, "The Viper" was popped for a testing positive for well ... something. Originally, it was reported that he had tested positive for the oral steroid methandrostenolone but he later told followers on Twitter not to believe everything they read.
Later, it was reported that he had simply failed for marijuana, which may or may not be true but he seemed to indicate as much in yet another Twitter post. Don't worry, he never claimed at any point that the nefarious Twitter hacker had struck again.
No matter what was in his system, he's now served his time and is eligible to return during tonight's (July 30, 2012) episode of Monday Night Raw in Cincinnati, Ohio. As of this writing, he's not advertised on the U.S. Bank Arena website but that's all subject to change, of course.
Before he left, Orton was starting up a feud with Chris Jericho in what was supposed to lead to a match between the two at Summerslam. Jericho has since moved on to a program opposite Dolph Ziggler.
So what's in store for "The Apex Predator" when he comes back, whenever that may be? Who knows. You'll have to stay tuned, Cagesiders.
