Randy Orton has not been on WWE television since last May when the Usos defeated RK-Bro in a unification title match on an episode of Friday Night SmackDown, where he was attacked by The Bloodline to be written off television following the match.
Orton had fusion back surgery last November that would keep him out of action for an extended period of time.
While speaking with Sportskeeda, ‘Cowboy’ Bob Orton Jr. commented on his son’s progress, noting that Randy’s doctors have told him not to return to the ring. He said,
“He’s training, so we’ll see what happens; I don’t know. If he feels like he’s ready to go back, I think he might, but again he’s pretty well taken care of. I don’t think he need [sic] to. And I think the doctors have told him not to. But Randy will do what Randy wants to do.”
