When Randy Orton showed up and assaulted Tye Dillinger when the Perfect Ten was close to a beat-the-champ-earn-a-title-shot victory over United States titleholder Shinsuke Nakamura, the first question which came to mind was “is there a connection between Nak and the Viper?”
After all, Randy’s feud with Jeff Hardy started when he targeted the Charismatic Enigma in the midst of his own feud with the U.S. champ.
But, no. As Orton explained to Mike Rome backstage, he’s got a perfectly legitimate reason which has nothing to do with protecting Nakamerica’s borders...
Yep, that checks out.
