Randy Orton returned to the ring at WWE Battleground on Sunday night, and took a shot at his upcoming opponent, Brock Lesnar.

Orton, a guest on Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel, was shown some clips of a recent interview Lesnar gave ahead of the two’s upcoming match at SummerSlam. Orton then took a jab at Lesnar for doping.

He said while it might take “20 suplexes to get to [Lesnar’s] Suplex City, it only takes one RKO to get to Viperville.” Then, he added that with him, there’s “no enhancement needed.”

Then, later, he RKO’d Jericho.

Lesnar was popped by the USADA for doping on two occasions leading up to his MMA fight at UFC 200. He failed an out-of-competition test, then later one on the night of the event.
