Randy Orton returns to WWE at Battleground

WWE announced last Thursday on SmackDown that Randy Orton won the Brock Lesnar lottery and would be wrestling “The Beast” at SummerSlam next month. What wasn’t made clear was when exactly he would return to television to start promoting as much.

Now we know.

That’s because the company revealed on Raw tonight that he’ll make his way back to the ring for a special edition of “The Highlight Reel” with Chris Jericho at the Battleground event on Sun., July 24, 2016, at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.

So, an interview. Exciting stuff!

The updated Battleground match card:

- Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns (WWE championship)
- Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens
- Becky Lynch vs. Natalya
- John Cena & Enzo & Cass vs. The Club
- The Miz vs. Darren Young (Intercontinental championship)
- The Highlight Reel with guest Randy Orton
