WWE fans eagerly await the return of “The Viper” Randy Orton to the television screens, following his absence from in-ring action since May 2022 due to a back injury. While there is hope within the wrestling community for his comeback, a recent update from his father, WWE Hall of Famer Bob Orton Jr., suggests that medical advice might not align with Randy’s determination to return to the squared circle.
In a recent niterview, Bob Orton Jr. shared insights into his son’s condition, revealing that medical professionals have advised Randy against resuming in-ring competition. However, he emphasized Randy’s strong-willed nature, stating, “Randy will do what Randy wants to do.” This statement hints at the wrestler’s determination to make a comeback despite the potential risks.
As fans continue to speculate about Randy Orton’s future in WWE, the company itself is reportedly hopeful for his return to television before the end of 2023. Nevertheless, no concrete plans for his comeback have been confirmed as of now.
Randy Orton’s relationship with Bray Wyatt, a former WWE colleague, has also come into focus recently, particularly in the wake of Wyatt’s tragic passing. Orton and Wyatt had a storied history in WWE, with Orton even briefly joining The Wyatt Family before betraying the group leader and engaging in a memorable feud with “The Eater of Worlds.”
