During Friday night’s episode of WWE SmackDown, the company provided an update on Randy Orton’s status following an attack from The Bloodline on last week’s episode of SmackDown.
Following the attack on Orton, Riddle appeared on Monday’s RAW and announced that his fellow “Bro” would be out of action for the time being. At that time, the reason given for his absence was due to back issues.
WWE has now taken to Twitter and posted the following statement:
“Randy Orton is currently undergoing consultations with neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons to determine the extent of his injury and to recommend course of treatment.”
