Report on Randy Orton’s physical condition for WWE Wrestlemania 39 weekend
It was previously reported that WWE had plans to bring in Randy Orton to Los Angeles for Wrestlemania 39 week. According to PWInsiderElite.com, Orton has been spotted in LA.
While there has been speculation about Orton’s return to the ring from injury being imminent, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com provided an update on Orton’s physical condition to suggest that an in-ring return might not happen in the near future. Meltzer tweeted, “don’t expect him doing matches any time soon as he’s a ways away from recovering from his back issues.”
WWE President Nick Khan teased that there will be “a bunch of surprises” at Wrestlemania. Orton has been one of several inactive WWE names rumored to at least be making an appearance at Wrestlemania 39. Other wrestlers potentially being Wrestlemania surprises include Matt Riddle, AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Big E.
Just an update on Randy Orton. Don't expect him doing matches any time soon as he's a ways away from recovering from his back issues.
