Injury update on Randy Orton
INDIANPOLIS – WWE Superstar Randy Orton suffered an injury at SmackDown in Indianapolis that could keep him sidelined for a few weeks, and will prevent him from competing at upcoming WWE live events.
Although the full extent of The Viper’s injury remains to be seen, WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson examined Orton and updated WWE.com about his condition.
“Randy suffered a herniated disc on the L4-L5 level on the left side, and that’s resulting in pain and weakness down his leg.” Dr. Sampson explained. “He’s going to need some time off for rehab, anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy.”
Sheamus is scheduled to replace The Viper in Street Fights against Wade Barrett at WWE live events this week.
