WWE superstar Randy Orton’s next match will be against Ryan Phillippe on Shooter.
Orton, who is currently away from wrestling due to an injury, will guest-star on an episode of the new USA series. The former WWE Champion will play James Richards, an ex-Navy SEAL who now leads the militia group Tree of Liberty. An investigation by Bobby Lee Swagger (Phillippe) exposes Richards as something other than the patriot he appears to be.
