After what feels like an eternity, it looks like we’re finally getting to the point of good news regarding WWE injuries. Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins is back in a wrestling ring, beloved Swiss Superman Cesaro will be back for the WWE European tour in April, and John Cena’s logging mad hours in his recovery shooting for an August return. Now, Fox Sports has a solid estimate on when we’ll see Randy Orton back on television:
Orton fell victim to the WWE injury bug early on when he injured himself taking out the trash back in October of last year. No, that’s not a metaphor; he was literally taking the garbage out when he dislocated his shoulder. The seemingly innocuous household chore worsened a previously existing shoulder problem:
Randy has suffered from a dislocated shoulder. He’s had chronic problems with his shoulder, and a recent MRI that was done found he has a Bankart lesion in his shoulder, some stretched ligaments and a partially torn rotator cuff. — via WWE.com
Now hopefully The Viper will be a lot less aggressive when he pounds on the mat (like a real snake!), lest he send himself right back to the already overcrowded WWE DL.
