Randy Orton will need neck surgery after he recovers from shoulder surgery, according to a report attributed to Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer publication.

The reported neck surgery is minor in nature as it’s apparently needed to clean out bone chips. Obviously there is the possibility that if his neck is in worse shape than thought, he could end up needing fusion surgery. However, that's not believed to be the case at this time.

Orton is currently out with a shoulder injury and will likely need 4-6 months to recover, making him extremely doubtful for Wrestlemania 32 next year. Neck surgery afterwards would keep him out even longer and would cause him to miss the majority of 2016.

Randy was married earlier this month.
