Randy Orton Sad Retirement Rumor Revealed

WWE veteran star Randy Orton has not been featured in the programming since May this year. Orton last competed on May 20 edition of WWE SmackDown, losing the Raw Tag Team Championships with Matt Riddle to The Usos. He has been dealing with a back injury that was considered significant enough for him to miss the rest of the year.



Randy Orton recently underwent surgery

Per Fightful Select (subscription required), ‘The Viper’ required a fusion in his lower back that would keep him out of action for an extended period of time. The surgery has already happened as noted by Orton’s wife posting a picture of him around the operation.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Randy Oron’s back fusion surgery. Meltzer revealed that Randy Orton underwent the surgery on November 14th, with some speculating his career could be over:

He had back fusion surgery a couple of weeks ago. The 14th was the date. Yeah, you know, the thing is he’s been out for months, and evidently, the fact was that he didn’t get the surgery right away which probably means he thought he could rehab it with rest, and I remember hearing that, man, it was I did hear a little scuttlebutt about how it’s not healing well, and I think that, you know there was definitely concern a month or so ago, and now he had the surgery.

You know, back injuries and back surgeries are weird, because you often hear about people saying it doesn’t help. Sometimes it does, but often you hear that it doesn’t help, and so hopefully the best for him. Randy is, you know, always preaching working safe, you know and does work a safer style than most, but the key is in this business nothing is safe.
