Randy Orton

Update on the report that Randy Orton is still not ready to wrestle again in WWE

As previously noted, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com tweeted about Randy Orton’s physical condition for WWE Wrestlemania 39 by writing “don’t expect him doing matches any time soon as he’s a ways away from recovering from his back issues.” During Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer went into more detail about the situation…

“This is what I was told. Randy Orton is in town. I was told by WWE that they said it was kinda like, ‘you can put it out,’ it’s not gossip. It was directly told to me that he is not ready to return. They basically said they don’t want people to think that he’s ready to return. So if for some reason that turns out to not be true, I mean, I was told from the very top there that and to put it out. They never lied to me about something this directed, so I presume that’s the case.” (quote courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
