WWE RAW: Randy Orton needs no help

In this storyline, AJ Styles didn’t like that Orton cost him the United States title. Orton was attacked immediately by The OC, leading to the arrival of Mysterio, Ricochet and Carrillo to save Orton. However, Randy Orton, who has had the WWE Championship 9 times, declined help from the 'Babyface' trio. The storyline seems to be heading towards a potential matchup between Randy Orton and AJ Styles, which could perhaps take place at TLC PPV - the last PPV event of 2019.
