Backstage Update On Randy Orton’s Injury

It was reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter in late November that Randy Orton’s shoulder injury is very serious and so serious that it will likely keep him off of WrestleMania 32. Orton also found out that he will need neck surgery. The reason for the neck surgery is to get bone chips in his neck cleaned out. His neck surgery will take place after doctors feel that he’s recovered enough from his shoulder surgery.

However, Orton took to Instagram to refute the reports that he is getting neck surgery. Orton wrote the following in the comments section of an Instagram post:

“I see many of you think I need neck surgery. I heard weeks ago that Meltzer stated it as a fact. I don’t keep up with gossip, so I didn’t think anything of it. As far as my shoulder, I was cut on 12/8. Things are ahead of schedule, and I’m pumped to get back to work. As far as my neck, and I’m only debunking this ‘fact’ for the sincerely concerned fans, I DONT need neck surgery. Remember, unless you hear about it on, you really should take everything you read online concerning pro wrestling with a grain of salt.”

Dave Meltzer discussed Orton’s status on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio. Meltzer said that his original report was back in November and that Orton just found out (one week ago) that he would not be needing the surgery. He would also say that Orton is expected to return to action between mid-March or early May.
