Randy Orton Told Not To Return To Wrestling
Doctors have advised Randy Orton not to return to in-ring action.
Randy Orton has not been seen on WWE TV for a year after losing the WWE Tag Team Title Unification match with The Uso’s in May 2022 and has been sidelined with a serious back injury.
The 14-time WWE Champion underwent fusion surgery last November and there has been little news regarding a possible return since.
Bob Orton has now updated fans that his son Randy has been advised by doctors that he should not return
The “Cowboy” has been speaking with legendary wrestling journalist Bill Apter about working with Roddy Piper and Jimmy Snuka.
Bob Orton entered the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 celebrating a career that included success in WWE during the 1980s.
During the discussion, Orton was asked about Randy and if we would see him back in WWE.
“He’s training so we’ll see what happens,”
“I don’t know if he feels like going back. If he feels like going back or if he feels like he’s ready to go back, I think he might,”
“Then again, he’s pretty well taken care of. I don’t think he needs to. I think the doctors have told him not to.”
Before his injury, Randy Orton had been working with Matt Riddle, twice winning the Raw Tag Team Championships.
With The Viper out injured, WWE has missed one of its biggest names, as the Grand Slam Champion has wrestled the most matches on PPV in the company’s history.
Randy has been hailed as a locker room leader by fellow WWE Superstars and was enjoying great success as a face during his time with Riddle.
Riddle has only just recently returned from his own injury layoff, and is looking to develop a more serious character.
Bob Orton gave fans a glimmer of hope that Randy could yet return to action, claiming that his son will make his own decision.
“Randy will do what Randy is gonna do, he always does.”
