CJ posted the latest update on Randy Orton’s shoulder injury here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com. Not only is Orton’s injury at a particularly bad time with John Cena away on approved time off but it could mean he misses Wrestlemania 32 next year.
WWE claims “surgery seems imminent,” which would carry a 4-6 month recovery timetable. This would put him out anywhere from March-May, making it nearly impossible to compete at the “Grand Daddy of Them All” from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Orton has a history of shoulder problems, with this latest injury being a Bankart lesion, stretched ligaments and a partially torn rotator cuff. The injuries will cause the shoulder to dislocate again unless surgically repaired.
