Randy Orton returned to the ring yesterday in a non-televised live event from Salt Lake City, Utah, wrestling Kane.
The former WWE World Heavyweight champion has been off from television since the November 3 Raw where he attacked The Authority and was then Curb Stomped by Rollins and carried off with a stretcher. During his time off he filmed the WWE Studios movie Condemned 2: Desert Prey.
He did appear at the December 29 Raw but only after cameras stopped rolling, coming out to help John Cena from another attack from The Authority.
His returned was rumored for the Royal Rumble but that obviously didn’t happen and WWE has been holding off his return for over a month now.
