There continues to be rumors that Randy Orton will defeat Chris Benoit for the World Heavyweight title at Summerslam this year.
As of right now the working plan is to have Orton win the title and hold it up until Wrestlemania 21 in Los Angeles, where he will face Triple H in
the main event. Sources are telling us that WWE is planning on having Triple H play the babyface role during said match. With that said, there may be
an Evolution split coming very soon.
We know that there have been talks within WWE of doing a double-turn with Randy Orton and Edge where they would make Orton the babyface and Edge the
heel due to recent crowd reactions, but there doesn't seem to be anything to those rumors at this point in time. The plan right now is to have Edge
turn heel and take Triple H's spot in Evolution.
