RANDY ORTON: Bob Orton says doctors advised Randy not to wrestle again

Posted on 5/14/123 by Colin Vassallo

In an interview with Bill Apter for Sportskeeda at the 80’s
Wrestling Con, WWE Hall of Famer Bob Orton revealed some
not-so-good news about his son Randy.

When Apter asked Orton what’s the status of Randy, he said
that doctors have advised him not to return to the ring but
nonetheless, Orton is training.

“He’s training, so we’ll see what happens,” Orton said. “I
don’t know if he feels like going back. If he feels ready to
go back, I think he might.”

He then continued, “Then again, he’s pretty well taken care
of. I don’t think he needs to and I think the doctors have
told him not to.”

Orton then said that “Randy’s gonna do what Randy wants to
do,” and left it at that.

Randy underwent back fusion surgery in late November of last
year and has been out of action since May, with his last
match being with Riddle against The Usos in a title
unification match. The Viper has not appeared on WWE
television ever since.
