LEGEND Randy Orton is set for some time away from the ring with WWE claiming that he is set to visit both neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons to determine his injuries.
The Viper and partner Riddle lost their Monday Night Raw tag team titles to The Usos on last week’s episode of SmackDown.
After the match, the pair were then viciously attacked by their opponents and Tribal Chief Roman Reigns.
Riddle returned to action on Raw, however, his RK-Bro teammate appears to have been written off television.
WWE provided the following update via social media: “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.”
It remains unclear whether the 42-year-old is struggling with a legitimate injury or not.
The third-generation superstar often takes periods of time away from WWE each year.
