Last night on Friday Night Smackdown, Randy Orton was drafted to Monday Night Raw.
This is the first time since 2016 that Orton will be competing solely on WWE’s flagship show.

When the WWE and World Heavyweight Champion was revealed as one of Raw’s newest Superstars, many thought he would slot into the heel main event role perfectly.
However, could Randy Orton be turning babyface?
Randy Orton and top babyface Kevin Owens took part in a segment after Smackdown went off the air last night. Instead of wrestling, Orton and Owens beatdown some of 205 Live’s heels.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer speculated that WWE might have been testing out how a 2019 crowd responds to Randy Orton as a babyface.
“So Randy Orton may be going babyface, or at least this was a test,”
Whether Orton is turning babyface or not is yet to be confirmed, but it likely won’t happen anytime soon.
At Crown Jewel later this month, Randy Orton is the captain of Team Flair, a team that will seemingly play the heel role at the show in Saudi Arabia.
