According to reports, Randy Orton’s doctors have advised against him returning to the ring. Randy Orton has been out of action since May 2022 after undergoing back surgery. His father, Bob Orton, recently spoke about his son’s current status and alluded that his injury could result in retirement.
“He’s training, so we’ll see what happens,” Bob Orton said. “I don’t know if he feels like going back or if he feels like he’s ready to go back, I think he might. Then again, he’s pretty well taken care of. I don’t think he needs to. I think the doctors have told him not to.”
Orton’s back injury is reportedly very serious. He had to undergo surgery to repair it, and it is unclear if he will ever be able to return to the ring at the same level as before.
Orton is one of the most decorated wrestlers in WWE history. He has held the WWE Championship 14 times, the World Heavyweight Championship 9 times, and the United States Championship 10 times. He is also a two-time Royal Rumble winner.
If Orton is forced to retire, it would be a huge loss for WWE. He is one of the most popular and successful wrestlers in the company’s history. His absence would be felt by fans all over the world.
Only time will tell if Orton will be able to return to the ring. But for now, it appears that his doctors have advised against it.
