It was confirmed by WWE on their website, WWE.com, that Randy Orton has suffered a dislocated shoulder injury that will keep him out of action for “an extended perioud of time.”
WWE’s physician Dr. Steve Daquino told the WWE website the following:
“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.”
Although an early recovery is possible, there are chances that the Viper, 35, could miss the biggest event of the company which is to take place in AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas. WWE expects to break their all time attendance record by filling in all of the 105,000 seater giant stadium. It is to be noted that Randy Orton has performed at every Wrestlemania since his debut in the year 2004.
The injury has already put Orton out of the tour of Mexico three weeks ago and he is expected to be replaced by the current US champion Alberto Del Rio in the upcoming tour of Europe.
