WWE Superstar Randy Orton has not appeared on television for the past several months. According to a recent report by PWInsider, Randy Orton is going to be on a break for a long time.
WWE fans were eagerly waiting for the return of Orton but if the reports are true then fans will have to wait for a long time for his return. Randy Orton was last seen on the episode of SmackDown on May 20.
In a 20+ year career @WWE, I’ve done a LOT. The time spent w @SuperKingofBros has been up there among my favorite. Aside from the jokes , he’s a serious competitor and athlete & a future world champion. But before that happens, we’re unifying those tag team titles on #Smackdown https://t.co/jA2dROsoia

In his last appearance, Randy teamed up with Matt Riddle to face The Usos in a Tag Team Championship Unification match. The match was a thriller, which The Usos won due to Roman Reigns interference.
After the match, The Bloodline assaulted Randy, and seemingly injured him in the process. Following the injury of his partner, Riddle got into a feud with The Bloodline.

According to the original injury update, Randy Orton was previously seeking treatment from orthopaedic spine doctors and neurosurgeons.
Recent news, as reported by PWInsider, appears to confirm it. On November 14, The Viper was seen in Birmingham, Alabama, a site frequently used by WWE for treatment and recuperation for injured performers.
When the multiple-time champion will make a comeback is unknown. Kim Orton’s photo update suggests that Randy was having surgery.
He was tied to a hospital bed when his partner took a photo of him on their marriage anniversary.
Eric Bischoff wants to be part of Randy Orton’s retirement storyline in WWE
WWE legend Eric Bischoff heaped praises on Randy Orton a few months ago. On the 83 Weeks podcast, he said that he wants to work Randy Orton with the retirement storyline.
Eric Bischoff said,
“I would love to be part of Orton’s retirement story writing team, there will come a time when Randy will want to use it. I want to part of the writing team of the Randy Orton you know. A glimpse of that Orton has not been seen much in the last few years.”
It will be interesting to see what plans the creative team has for Randy Orton post his return. In any case, WWE fans would love to see Orton face Roman Reigns in a heel vs heel storyline.
