How Randy Orton Got Injured, Surgery May Be Required

Randy Orton and Kim Marie Kessler

It was first reported on Tuesday that Randy Orton is out of action with a dislocated shoulder. He had been wrestling with a bad shoulder and he has a history of shoulder problems. For those that don’t remember, Orton used to do the deal where he used to hit the mat real hard with his fists while setting up for the RKO. He had to modify that after he injured his shoulder. He’s had other issues besides that but that is one injury that took place during a TV match.

Dave Meltzer provided an update on his condition in this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The WWE Superstar was taking out the garbage to the curb this past week and the shoulder dislocated and that caused him to be in tremendous pain. It took three hours to pop it back into place.

Orton is set to have an MRI done to find out the extent of the damage. He may end up requiring surgery. His prognosis is yet to be determined if he gets surgery.

Orton has said in the past that he was born with hypermobile shoulders so he had to get a procedure done many years ago to get them tightened up.
