• Latest Update On Randy Orton

14-Time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton is currently out of action with a back injury.

He hasn’t wrestled since May and was written off WWE programming after a vicious storyline assault by Roman Reigns.

Orton underwent a lower back fusion surgery, which resulted in the original plan for the SummerSlam 2022 main event being canceled – Roman Reigns (c) vs. Randy Orton for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

PWInsider provided the following latest update on The Viper:

“There’s been some rumblings about Randy Orton internally within the last week or so, where there hadn’t been any discussion about him internally in some time.”

This could mean that Orton’s return is near. WWE usually saves returns around this time for the RAW / SmackDown after WrestleMania.

As we have noted before, pro-wrestling bootmaker Jose G Sanz recently revealed on Facebook that Orton contacted him to make a new set of boots for his return to WWE.

Below is what he wrote on his story (translated from Spanish):

“I haven’t made them yet but Randy Orton contacted me via email for his return. Currently, Drew McIntyre and Bray Wyatt are some of the biggest superstars. Today I received an order for boots for Cody (Rhodes) for WrestleMania.”

Orton recently made a public appearance to meet some fans, and he looked jacked:
