In a candid revelation, WWE superstar Randy Orton recently opened up about his feelings regarding the way WWE handled his much-anticipated return to the ring.

Orton, who made a triumphant comeback at Survivor Series last November, expressed initial disappointment over WWE’s decision to pre-announce his return, rather than keeping it as a surprise.

After being sidelined for several months due to a severe back injury requiring fusion surgery, there were concerns that Orton might retire.

However, defying these speculations, he returned to the WWE, re-establishing himself as a top-tier superstar. His comeback was not kept under wraps as WWE chose to publicise his appearance at the Premium Live Event in advance.

Speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Orton shared his initial reaction to WWE’s strategy, admitting that it somewhat dampened his spirits. “Kind of let the wind out of my sails,” he remarked.
