Randy Orton is upset over a few websites claiming that he is off television due to a suspension. Of course that is not true. In a follow-up to the story on him being upset over a report from Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter saying that he was going to be out of action until October, here is what he had to say to be exact: “The pain is gone and I’m well on my way to a speedy recovery. I’m using a special machine that gives the break site a direct pulse from an electromagnet. It helps regenerate the strongest bone growth quickly. It should speed up my three month prognosis to two-and-a-half months at best. I also had only one break in my clavicle, which is the least amount of damage. Most moderate to severe collarbone breaks have two, three, four sometimes five breaks in the bone.” Orton also said that he actually hasn’t gotten an X-ray to see how well the bone is healing, but he thinks he should back in the ring by early to mid August, just in time for SummerSlam. The creative team thought he was coming back in October, hence the original report.
Regarding Melina’s injury on Raw this past week, there is still no official word on the matter, but it is believed that she either fractured her heel or tore ligaments in her ankle and will likely need surgery. No word yet on how long she’ll be out, but it’s definitely going to be at least a few weeks, if not months.
