In addition to racking up a myriad of accolades throughout his career, Randy Orton has also demonstrated a longevity that is unmatched in the history of the business. La Vipera has been absent for several months due to a back injury and his conditions are causing concern among both fans and insiders.
After trying to reduce the pain through conservative therapy, the 14-time world champion was forced to undergo fusion surgery on his lower back. Recall that his last appearance in the ring was on the episode of SmackDown on May 20, in which he joined forces with Matt Riddle to face The Usos.
The WWE Universe hopes to see the 'Legend Killer' in action again at the Royal Rumble 2023 or at the latest at WrestleMania 39, which will be held a stone's throw from Hollywood.
Backstage news on Randy Orton
During the 'K&S WrestleFest' event, Bob Orton provided an important update on his son's condition: "Randy Orton will not give up.
I see him about once a week and he is motivated to get back in the ring as soon as possible. You will see him in action sooner than expected”. The Viper was having something of a second youth in WWE before this injury and many believed he could capture his 15th world title.
In the latest edition of his podcast, the legendary Kurt Angle analyzed Randy's perspectives in detail: “A lot of people don't realize it, but it's the back that controls everything. You can't do anything anymore if your back doesn't respond to the commands.
The case of Randy Orton is emblematic in this sense. The Viper had to stop due to pain and it is not known when he will return to the ring. It is hoped that this operation will extend his career, but it is impossible to make predictions.
Back problems are perhaps the worst of all for a professional wrestler. If your back doesn't support you, your career is over." During the chat, Ken Anderson was first asked about whether the WWE had reached out to him regarding a return.
He also addressed the question about his beef with Randy Orton. "No. Nope. In fact, I didn't even, I didn't really even talk to, I still have friends that wrestle there, but I just went there this last year. WWE came to the Target Centre here; actually, it was the excel centre here in Saint Paul, and you know, I went down there and said hi to everybody, and that was the first time that I had talked to anybody within the company, in the office at least, since I left."
