As noted earlier this week, Randy Orton is out of action with a dislocated shoulder. Orton, who has a long history of shoulder injuries, had been working with a bad shoulder in recent months. According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the dislocation didn’t take place in the ring, but while Orton was at home taking out the garbage.
He was said to be in tremendous pain and it took three hours to pop it back into place. The former WWE Champion will be undergoing an MRI soon to determine the extent of the damage and might require surgery.
Orton has stated in interviews that he was born with ‘hyper-mobile’ shoulders and underwent a procedure several years ago to tighten them up. His career has been plagued with shoulder injuries, missing extended time from the ring in 2005, 2010, 2012, 2013 and now in 2015.
