Randy Orton is the leader of the Smackdown group and for good reason. He has the most championship reigns than anyone on the roster (not named Undertaker), and he has headlined multiple Wrestlemanias.
In the last number of months, Orton has fallen out of the limelight as Henry emerged the star of the show.
Orton doesn't need to be in the main event all the time and even if he does go on with a new feud with Cody Rhodes, he will still have the same value as he did before, just not good enough to beat Henry during the biggest push of the "World's Strongest Man's" career.
There's no shame in not going for a title and settling scores, remember, Orton did that all last year when he was feuding with CM Punk for Wrestlemania.
Orton hasn't even been in a Wrestlemania main event since he faced Triple H at Wrestlemania 25.
He doesn't necessarily have to have the most air time but we know what Orton is capable of, he just has to sit on the sidelines for now, once he jobs to Henry once more because though the feud isn't over, we are getting close to it and Henry will likely come away with the title in the end, if the WWE knows whats good for Henry and what they have built.
