Latest fitness update on WWE Superstar Randy Orton 

11 months ago By Sports Desk

Notable WWE star Randy Orton has been conspicuously absent from television and has not participated in any wrestling matches for the past 15 months. His last match, a Tag Team Unification Match on May 20, 2022, on WWE SmackDown, saw him lose his Raw Tag Team Championship to The Usos and sustain a back injury during the bout.

Subsequently, it was revealed that Orton underwent a legitimate lower back fusion surgery due to his injury, leading to an indefinite hiatus from in-ring action. His father, Bob Orton, provided updates on his medical progress, confirming a successful surgery in November. However, doctors advised against his return to the wrestling ring despite his recovery. Orton, despite the medical advice, expressed his willingness to return once he clears his medical conditions. Although rumors have circulated about his return, Orton’s latest medical status and potential comeback remain topics of interest, especially with SummerSlam approaching.

Randy Orton to not return to WWE anytime soon 

Regarding Orton’s potential return to SummerSlam 2023, Wrestling Journalist Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select shared a significant update. He revealed that Orton is currently not part of WWE’s creative plans and has not received medical clearance for in-ring activity. While Orton desires to return to wrestling, he has not yet commenced in-ring training and is currently focused on gym sessions for weightlifting.

Addressing the speculations about Orton’s SummerSlam return, inside sources suggest that it is unlikely to happen, given his exclusion from creative plans. Consequently, Orton will not be making a comeback at the Detroit SummerSlam event. However, there remains optimism for a potential return later this year or early next year.

Despite being sidelined since May 2022, Randy Orton’s return timeline remains uncertain. While he has resumed weightlifting to maintain his physique, he has not received clearance for in-ring training. His determination to return is evident, although doctors have advised against it. When the time comes for Orton to resume in-ring training, WWE’s Performance Center in Orlando is likely to play a role in his preparation.

Orton’s last match involved a Tag Team Championship unification on “WWE SmackDown” in May 2022, where he and Matt Riddle lost their “Raw” Tag Team Championship. Riddle has since pursued a singles career with notable rivalries, while Orton’s return continues to be anticipated by fans and the wrestling community.
