That’s rather serious. Injuries are one of the worst things that can happen to a wrestler as you never know how bad something is going to be at first. Then comes the waiting, as you have nothing else to do but see just how long someone is going to be out of action. Sometimes that can be for a good while and in worse cases, it can be indefinite. Unfortunately an all time legend is dealing with the latter.
Back in May, Randy Orton left WWE TV to deal with a back injury and has not been seen since. According to Fightful Select, Orton underwent some sort of back fusion surgery at some point this year. WWE sources have reportedly said that the company will be lucky to have Orton back after his recovery. However, when he was initially injured, Orton said that he would be back at some point. There is nothing in the way of a guess about when Orton could return to the ring.
Orton is amazing when he is able to be in the ring. Check out what he can do when he is around:
Opinion: When you think about Orton’s career, his back issues should not come as the biggest shock. Orton has spent the better part of twenty years using a finishing move where he jumps in the air, lays out flat and lands on his back. It would almost be more of a surprise if he wasn’t suffering from some serious back issues. Hopefully he can come back at some point and go out on his terms, but this isn’t the most promising news.
What do you think of Orton? What should he do if he comes back? Let us know in the comments below.
