Randy Orton Injury Update

Posted by Brad Davis December 31, 2011 Comments are off


WWE.com reported Thursday that company physician Dr. Michael Sampson examined Randy Orton and said he suffered a herniated disc on the L4-L5 level on the left side, which has resulted in pain and weakness down his leg.

“He’s going to need some time off for rehab, anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy,” said Dr. Sampson.

In an update on this, his injury is legitimate. Orton had been complaining of the injury for two weeks which is why his physical workload was reduced prior to the injury angle shot at Tuesday’s SmackDown taping in Indianapolis, Indiana. WWE.com says the injury could keep him sidelined for a few weeks or more depending on when test results come back.

It should also be noted that rumors going around the internet that Orton failed a wellness policy test are completely false.
