Randy Orton has been on a streak this year thanks to his rivalry with Edge. While Orton has always been one of the greats, Edge’s return has ignited a renewed spark in The Viper that had been absent for quite some time.

The rivalry between Orton and Edge is far from over at this point. But the third fight or between the two was delayed due to Edge’s triceps injury to Backlash. The original plans were for Edge and Randy Orton to have a fight at SummerSlam.

With that option out of the way, Randy Orton had allegedly done a poll to face either Adam Cole or Tomasso Ciampa in Summerslam. Talksport and WrestleTalk have stated that Orton will not face Ciampa at this year’s SummerSlam.

Although it is believed that these two men who were at war on Twitter some time ago could face each other in the future. Randy Orton’s likely SummerSlam opponent will be Drew McIntyre.

This is what Louis Dangoor of WrestleTalk said:

A few weeks ago, I reported that Randy Orton had been applying to work with NXT cast members at SummerSlam, especially Adam Cole and Tommaso Ciampa. However, I am told that due to the heel shortage in #WWERaw, Randy Orton will likely face Drew McIntyre.

These rumors were corroborated by Alex McCarthy of TalkSport:

To be fair, I was also told that Orton’s immediate thoughts after learning that Edge was injured was to fight Adam Cole or Tommaso Ciampa at SummerSlam. I’m not sure of the current plans, but common sense says Randy is Drew’s best heel and rival.

Tommaso Ciampa and Randy Orton rivalry

Randy Orton and Ciampa were part of a social media rivalry on Twitter a few weeks ago after Randy Orton taunted NXT superstars after NXT TakeOver: In Your House. The Viper made a joke about ‘patting the leg’ that Ciampa did not take too kindly.

Former NXT champion Tomasso Ciampa said he puts his daughter to sleep by making her watch Randy Orton’s struggles. Although this rivalry could have been part of an eel, it created enough of a stir for fans to want a heads-up between the two.
