Wrestling certainly isn’t ballet and unfortunately injuries do happen from time to time. Randy Orton has been out of action for months now as he’s been dealing with a back injury.

It doesn’t seem that there’s any timeline for Orton’s return as the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that there’s a lot of concern over the severity of Randy Orton’s injury.

When Orton was first sidelined Fightful Select report that WWE feared Orton would be forced to undergo surgery and the expectation was that The Viper would be out of action for the rest of 2022.

Randy Orton last competed on the May 20 episode of Friday Night SmackDown when The Usos defeated RK-Bro to win the Raw Tag Team Titles. It had been reported that Orton was set to face Roman Reigns at SummerSlam, but plans had to be changed due to Randy’s injury. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
