Randy Orton has been sidelined from the ring from last October 2015 due to injury. There have been constant rumors over the exact injury reason. WWE has never issued any formal statement on his injury and return which kept the rumor mill going on speculating his injury and his possible return date. Though, Randy himself acknowledged that his injury had occurred due to a match held in October in Chicago. He also underwent a surgery which was much similar that of the Rugby players.
The time when he got sidelined from in-ring competition, he was involved in a feud with the Wyatt family. As he was last seen on television in a segment with Wyatt family, it was thought that he will continue his storyline with them. But, due to the legit injury, he missed his scheduled Hell in a Cell match. If he does not show up for the WWE Draft then Battleground will mark his first appearance since the return.
