Randy Orton and Jeff Hardy are reportedly both not backstage at tonight’s episode of Raw.
PWInsider reported the news earlier today. The report states that Orton, who was reportedly set to return on tonight’s show, has not been seen at the venue.
There is still time for Orton to arrive at the arena in Chicago so do not take this as a definite report that he will not be on the show. PWInsider’s report was released at 5:30 pm EST.
Orton has been off television for over a month with an injury. In his absence, Matt Riddle has been continuing their RKBro storyline solo.
The report also states that Jeff Hardy is not at Raw either. Hardy was taken off of the road last week when he tested positive for COVID-19. This absence should not come as a surprise as it has not been 14 days since Hardy’s positive test was reported.
Hardy was supposed to face Karrion Kross on Raw last week in a rematch of their short match from two weeks ago. However, due to Hardy’s absence, Kross faced and defeated Keith Lee instead.
