Randy Orton was out of action for 1.5 years due to a major back injury.

During an interview on Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast, Orton revealed the issues he was facing due to his injury and thanked Matt Riddle for being his tag team partner in RK-BRO and doing most of the work during the matches.

Below is what Orton said:

“I changed a lot of stuff off this last 18 months. I really needed the time. I had a lot of ailments. I couldn’t stand for more than a couple of minutes without having pain shoot down my legs.

When I would sit I had a disc that was slipping every time I would bend. On a plane, sitting here, my feet would go numb and I would have pain shooting down my legs. It was hard.

That last year before I had to leave because of the back. I was in a tag team with former WWE Superstar Matt Riddle. I got to give him props because that year we tagged together, I was not able to be in that ring unless I was in there with someone like him because he was able to take the brunt of the physicality.

If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t have made it that far.

I had some great doctors, they fixed me up right, they didn’t cut through any muscle which would enable me to get back in the ring.

Because once you start cutting muscle, like that’s never gonna heal back and you’re done. I’m just blessed all the way around.”

Riddle heard what Orton had to say and posted the following:

“Thanks Randy 🐍 ❤️”

WWE had plans to do a feud between Randy Orton and Matt Riddle at one point, but they got postponed, and WWE ended up releasing Riddle due to him being involved in controversies out of the ring and failing two WWE drug tests.
