WWE is back in fashion in 2023 and life is wonderful again. At least for fans of televised wrestling. And especially if you like the show surrounded by sticks.
And those of us who grew up watching WWE in the 90s and 2000s miss many of the great wrestlers we fell in love with as kids. Today we talk about the return (or possible return) of one of the greatest.
Is Randy Orton returning to WWE?
In the days leading up to WrestleMania 39, there were rumors that Randy Orton wanted to make his long-awaited return to WWE at the big event.
With the company openly talking about big surprises, there was some hope that we might see The Viper.
Unfortunately, that was not the case. Randy Orton has been out for some time dealing with a back injury that required major surgery.
In September of last year, some people in WWE were said to be “concerned” about his injury. Now, even eight months later, his father, Bob Orton, provided an update to Bill Apter for WrestleBinge.
“He’s training, so we’ll see what happens. I don’t know if he’s eager to come back or if he’s ready to come back. I think he might. On the other hand, he’s very well taken care of, I don’t think he needs it and I think the doctors have told him not to do it. But Randy will do what Randy is going to do.”
On the one hand, it’s good to hear he’s training. On the other, it’s not so good to hear that the doctors are telling him not to come back. But, hey, Cowboy Bob is a worker too – maybe he’s just working?
