Randy Orton will not wrestle Bray Wyatt at tonight’s WWE Backlash event.
PWInsider have confirmed with sources that while Orton is backstage at the event, he has not been cleared to compete. It is believed to be concussion-related, and stems from the TKO finish to his match with Brock Lesnar at last month’s SummerSlam.
No word yet on the angle WWE will run to explain the match not taking place, and are currently still advertising the match on the event section of their website.
Furthermore, Orton’s scheduled rematch with Lesnar in Chicago on 24 September is now also in doubt.
