Home » WWE News » Randy Orton Injury Update – Possibly Missing WrestleMania 28

- As noted earlier, Randy Orton was injured at last night’s SmackDown tapings in Indianapolis during the Falls Count Anywhere main event against Wade Barrett. Orton has been removed from this week’s live events.

Word backstage was that Orton suffered some sort of back injury and it has to do with at least one of the discs in his back. Orton could miss up to 6 months of in-ring time, causing him to miss WrestleMania 28. An official update from WWE should be available soon.

    Wish it was Cena.

  • Jon

    I watch Impact yesterday. I really don’t get it Abyss is heel or face all the time. Everything doesn’t make sense over there

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    ^^^^^^ OMG! I LOL’D at this for hours. Great sense of humor there @Tyler!

  • Tyler

    And mr Kennedy is with the best professional company now TNA

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    ^^^ Thanks man.—

  • Jon

    Mr Kennedy got fired because he botched a lot. Not on Orton but even on Eddie Guerrero last match. The guy botched alot in the WWE and that why he gone.

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    @Zane
    Last I heard Kennedy was fired for drugs. (think i am correct), For some reason you seem to think anytime orton or Cena win a match they are burying someone, Their job is whatever they are booked to do. As far as the baby oil hell thats no worse than you covering your little winkie in it every morning. (masturbating in case you couldnt understand).

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    @Zane
    I’ll always be one of the first people to bash Orton but yes it is his job to bury talent. He does what he gets booked to do, same with Cena.

  • I3RIS3H

    Hoping for a quick recovery..

    When he comes back it’d be nice to see him heel. At least that’s my opinion.

  • Zane

    @W.cares Yeah it was really his job to get Mr.Kennedy fired was it? On top of that is it his job to bury rising talent like its dirt? Is it his job to smuther himself in baby oil?

  • Kamala’s Foot

    I hope Randy is out for 9 months. This way the fans will miss him and want him back. I think Orton is good, but sick of him in the title scene. I hate to say this, I know Orton is young and people think he’ll be around for a while, but all it takes is one injury to end a career. Look at Edge.

  • W.cares

    Zane, Rob Buck and alucard420. You all wish harm on someone who’s only doing their jobs? I’m sure real fans would wish the same on you guys…if you weren’t jobless waste of live living in your grandmothers basement not realising Orton and Cena are being paid to do the stuff on TV.

    Speaking of grandmothers guess who Randy Ortons gonna be RKO’ing during his time off? :D

  • CenaOrtonPunk

    I hope he recovers fast! Guess if he’s out due to injury.. no need to watch SmackDown.

  • Nicholas

    I am a big fan of Randy Orton. It doesn’t surprise me that there are some internet fans who are so heartless that they would wish injury to others now I am not saying everybody just the one wishing injury. But this can be a good thing for Randy Orton long term. Why it give Randy Orton time to sit back relax an when he returns you watch how big he becomes. It is funny those people who wish injury to Randy if either any one of them had a back injury they would be crying like little kids. But Randy Orton he just going to work harder to get back not like those haters would know anything about working.

    This also put Wade Barrett on the map also. The let it be Wade Barrett who cost him the injury. Because like I said before WWE is in need of a darn good heel right now. Why not let it be Wade Barrett he has done it before and he can do it again. Let him be the one who knocks of CM Punk not Bryan put Punk. Why because that is what Punk needs right now a big rival. An bring heat to the WWE title as well.

    In closing Randy Orton will be back bigger and better then every. While the haters will just sit an whine all day long on the internet. Hey at least Randy Orton sill has a life with life after wrestling. Can you say the some about those morons who wish injury on others. I don’t think so.

  • MikeCrazy

    First Rey then ADR and now Orton! I hope this happens to Cena like a week before WM28. That would show WWE not hype a up a stupid fucking match a year ahead ever aGAIN. It’s Jericho!!!

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    What a shame he could be gone for a bit. He can’t bury every opponent and may miss Mania… Too bad it took him getting hurt though.

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    @Kirby my spelling was a bit off haha

  • man

    You ppl say take cena out of the title pic and he is now you want him injured do you ppl ever get satisfied? We all know cena wont have a title for awhile and he pushed zack ryder aka young talent sooo what’s the excuse now?

  • Stevie P

    Yeah I’m not a fan of Orton. I think he’s a lil too cocky but I don’t wish injury on the guy. I hope he recovers quickly. Back injuries are terrible, just ask HBK.

  • Kirby

    @Pissed Off Fan =( who the hell is Shamues??? LOL

  • Rob Buck

    By, “why couldn’t it have been Cena” I by no means wish injury on him, However I wish he was taken off tv for a while

  • http://wrestlingedge alucard420

    Randy hope you never come back :)

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    Even though this sucks, with randy and mysterio out of mania this upcoming yr, this could help the young guys finally get their WM moments. Guys like Shamues, Barett, Ziggler, Ryder, Christian, Rhodes and so on

  • lol

    I really couldn’t care less if JERICHO returns for the 10 time. JERICHO is old news

  • No1Coleminer

    Randal will sooo punt zanes mother for that comment

  • shawn

    if he comes back a heel it’d be great. if he was a heel currently there would be no shitty comments here. thats wrestling today as far as fans getting behind wrestlers or not btw.

  • jimbo jones

    I hope he gets better soon. I like Orton except that he’s always in the title picture and WWE feels they have to build Smackdown around him and RAW around John Cena. This is obviously bad for Orton, but it could be a good thing to for Orton and WWE. Orton could go home and rest his body and spend time with his family while WWE could be trying new guys in the main-event/ title picture. This is a great opportunity for Wade Barrett. They could have him win the title a few months before Orton comes back. When Orton comes back, he’ll be fresh in the fan’s minds and he could feud with Barrett for the title. As long as WWE didn’t bury Wade Barrett in the feud(like they did Christian) it would probably be worth watching and Barrett would get his feet wet in the main event picture. There will be about 4 or 5 WHC tile changes anyway before orton gets back, so why not let Barrett win one.

  • scooter

    never been a big fan but no one deserves to be injured hope he gets well soon

  • BITWx

    According to a source within WWE, former star Chris Jericho, who has been highly rumored to be the 1/2/12 “arrival” set for Raw next Monday night, will indeed be in Memphis, Tennessee, from January 1st to the 3rd.

    Although this does not confirm or deny that Jericho will be on Raw this Monday night, WZ has learned that he will fly into Memphis, the site of next week’s Raw, some time on the first of January, and leave on the third, making it a definite possibility that he could appear on Raw, which is being broadcast from The FedEx Forum

  • Jon

    It at least spend time to with his family. Something tell me after going though there social media stuff and being “friends” with them I think he was burnt out.

    But hope Orton get better. See him live last night he wasn’t that boring at all. So people wishing him to get hurt I have two words for you “GROW UP”.

  • Jimbo

    And here I thought it was just a storyline injury. Good thing Wade Barrett’s name isn’t Mr. Kennedy. Well anyway, I do not wish injury on anyone and hope he’s ok.

  • aircon

    maybe he can shave while he is gone

  • daniel

    STUPID ! STUPID ! STUPID !

  • Mabry

    i dont care who it is or how much i love or hate a wrestler, but wishing them harm or wishing for them to be injured is not right. Its their job thats on the line, and you dont mess with that. If you dont like a guy, change the damn channel or fast forward their matches but dont wish them to be injured… stupid pricks!!!

  • BestInTheWorld

    I’m just hoping that this doesn’t lead Barrett to getting buried. Barrett was getting a really nice push towards the main event picture from high-midcarder status.

  • Bill

    I sincerely don’t mean to hate on Orton, but at least we can probably say he won’t be taking the title from D. Bryan at WM.

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    ^^^^ Aint that the damn truth.

  • JIR

    NEVER EVER WISH HARM UPON ANYBODY you don’t know when it could be you who is hurt

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    @Adam
    Allow me to answer your question for both of them–I’ts because they are a couple of heartless dumbasses. Wishing injury on anyone just because you do not like their character is just plain stupid.

  • Adam

    @zane & rob buck, why wish people to be injuryed, fair enough if you dont like fact both those guys had several title reigns over past fews years or you don’t like their characters. But wish them be hurt and be out for 6 months is just pathetic, and if you dont like the way they come across on TV blame Vince and the writers because wrestling is scripted!!!

  • jamie

    i hope u have a speedy recover randy. i know alot of people are tired of seeing randy having championships and being in main events he is one of my favorite wrestlers i can stand randy more than john cena but whats good to see that the younger talents getting championship shots.

  • Rob Buck

    Why Couldn’t it happen to cena?

  • me

    you’rea fucking dick head zane, what’s orton ever done to you?

  • shay

    hope u get better randy and a speedy recover. i know alot of people dont like randy b/c he always get title shots and always in the spot light he is one of my favorite wrestlers :) but i can stand him more than john cena but im also glad they are giving these younger talents a chance at the gold

  • Zane

    Hope its long term.
