Randy Orton did not appear on this week’s WWE RAW after being advertised.

Orton had been advertised for tonight’s Money In the Bank Second Chance Qualifier Triple Threat with Drew McIntyre and RAW Tag Team Champion AJ Styles. WWE was still advertising Orton for the match right up until RAW hit the air on the USA Network.

Tonight’s RAW opened with Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville declaring that Orton was unable to compete due to circumstances out of their control. They then announced a Battle Royal to fill Orton’s spot in the Money In the Bank Second Chance Qualifier. Riddle, Orton’s recent tag team partner, ended up winning the Battle Royal to replace Orton in the main event.

Riddle did battle with Styles and McIntyre in a lengthy main event that saw McIntyre get the win. McIntyre now joins Riddle, Ricochet, and John Morrison as the four red brand Superstars who will compete in the Men’s Money In the Bank Ladder Match.

There’s no word yet on why Orton did not appear on RAW, but we will keep you updated.
