Rhea Ripley wants Randy Orton to join Judgment Day when he returns to WWE Recently during a Q&A session, Rhea Ripley said that she wants Orton to join The Judgment Day upon his WWE return as she doesn’t want any threats from The Viper because he is known for storylines involving hitting an RKO on female superstars.
“People on social media, they keep throwing this one person’s name at me, hoping that he’d come and put me in my place. So my choice [to join The Judgment Day] would be Randy Orton because ain’t no one hitting Mami with an RKO,” said Rhea Ripley during a recent Q&A session on UP NXT. “Mami is always right, and Mami is always on top. Randy Orton will be a part of my Judgment Day, and he’d be a step below Mami.”
Fans are eagerly waiting for Orton to make his return. If the rumors are true, then we could see him at SummerSlam. Let’s see what WWE has in store for The Viper.
