It might be a bit. Injuries are one of the great equalizers in wrestling as you never know when you are going to see any wrestler go on the shelf for a very long time. Anyone can get injured at any given time and it becomes a matter of waiting with a hope of a return date in sight. That is the situation with a top WWE star and it seems like we could be waiting for a long while.
Randy Orton has not wrestled since the May 20 SmackDown, after which he was attacked by the Bloodline. The attack was designed to write him off of television as Orton was suffering from a back injury. According to PWInsider.com, Orton is still out of action with his back injury and there is nothing to suggest that he will be return soon. Orton has been referenced by Matt Riddle during his absence, with Riddle still using Orton’s offense during his matches.
Opinion: That doesn’t sound like the greatest news in the world as Orton has already been out for nearly four months with no return in sight. Orton is one of the biggest stars in all of WWE but there is only so much that can be done when he can’t get in the ring. This isn’t a surprise given his age and lengthy career, but it would be great to see him get back when he is ready.
What do you think of Orton? What should he do when he gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
