Randy Orton Suspended 60 Days by WWE

Major news hit the pro wrestling world today as superstar Randy Orton has been suspended by WWE for 60 days.  This is due to Orton's second violation of the Wellness Policy.  That means one more violation and he's out.

In breaking news on Wednesday, WWE announced on its website:

"In accordance with its Talent Wellness Program, WWE has suspended Randy Orton for 60 days effective today (May 30) for his second violation of the company's policy."

According to, the suspension puts Orton out of action until late July/early August.  Raw moves to three hours around that time, and will also be building the hype to Summerslam 2012 PPV.

Ironically, Orton looked like he was involved in a feud with Chris Jericho, but Jericho got suspended 30 days for a flag incident at a Brazil House show.  On the most recent episode of Raw, Orton looked like he may be getting into a feud with The Miz, but now that clearly won't be happening either.

This leaves WWE in a bit of a conundrum, as they have to figure out what to do without some of their top talent for Raw and Smackdown.  Which superstars do you think should fill the role in the interim?
