Around the time of the 2023 WWE Summerslam PLE, Randy Orton was said to be “nowhere near medically cleared to return” despite rumors of him potentially appearing at the event.
Speculation about Orton’s potential return has started up again due to a video of him outside the WWE Performance Center in Orlando that has been circulating around the internet. While the actual date of the video is unclear, Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com confirmed with a WWE source that Orton has been at the PC this week.
Furthermore, Corey Brennan of Bodyslam.net noted the following…
“Bodyslam.net has confirmed with sources in Orlando that Orton has been training for his return at the Performance Center for the past 3 weeks. Orton’s tour bus has been a weekly constant at the Performance Center during the past few weeks. We were unable to confirm who Orton has been working with to prepare for his return as of this writing.”
At this time, there is still no timetable regarding when Orton will be cleared to wrestle again.
