Injury update on Randy Orton
INDIANAPOLIS – WWE Superstar Randy Orton suffered an injury at SmackDown in Indianapolis that could keep him sidelined for several weeks.
The injury occurred during a brutal Falls Count Anywhere Match with Wade Barrett on the Dec. 30 edition of SmackDown. As their brawl spilled outside the ring, the referee was knocked out when Orton shoved Barrett into him. Next, the cut-throat brawl continued within the Conseco Fieldhouse, where The Viper ended up at the bottom of a set of stairs. With WWE’s Apex Predator down, Barrett approached, but then decided to leave through an arena door (FULL SMACKDOWN RESULTS | WATCH | PHOTOS).
Upon examining Orton last week, WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson informed WWE.com as to 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.”
On Jan. 2, WWE physician Chris Amann provided further insight on The Viper's progress.
“Randy is doing quite well. The pain and the weakness in his leg is subsiding. We expect him to make a full recovery."
Orton could not be reached for comment. Stay with WWE.com for further updates.
