Randy Orton Major Injury Update Revealed

Last updated

WWE veteran star Randy Orton has been away from programming since May this year. Orton last competed on May 20 edition of WWE SmackDown, losing the Raw Tag Team Championships with Matt Riddle to The Usos. He has been dealing with a back injury that was considered significant enough for him to miss the rest of the year. Now, an update has emerged on the matter.

The injury is likely to keep Randy Orton sidelined

Per Fightful Select (subscription required), ‘The Viper’ required a fusion in his lower back that would keep him out of action for an extended period of time. The surgery has already happened as noted by Orton’s wife posting a picture of him around the operation.

The report notes that some in WWE said they’d be fortunate to have him back ‘after such a long career and the significance of the injury’.

Despite the injury, Orton did tell some within the company that he would eventually return when he was injured. We will now have to wait and see when he is able to return.
