WWE Confirms Randy Orton’s Injury, Orton Out For “Extended Period Of Time”

WWE has confirmed that Randy Orton will be sidelined for an “extended period of time” after dislocating his shoulder a few weeks ago.

While WWE is implying Bray Wyatt is responsible for this (storyline-wise), reports claim Orton suffered the dislocated shoulder at home, while taking out the trash. It was said the injury was bad enough where it took three hours to pop it back into place.

WWE doctor Steve Daquino issued the following comment:

“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. At this point it’s a matter of when he dislocates the shoulder again, and not if. Surgery seems imminent, and recovery time for such a surgery would be four to six months.”
