Randy Orton has a deviated septum according to a new report by Dave Meltzer. This is why Orton ended up only making short appearances at WWE live events this past weekend.
Orton wrestled in a match against Kane in New York City on 12/26 in his official return to the company, only made an appearance after the main event on 12/27 in Long Island and then had another short match with Kane on 12/28 in Hershey.
Orton did make an appearance after RAW on 12/29 in Washington, DC after it went off the air. Orton is scheduled to have surgery and his recovery time is only expected to be for a few weeks. He’s scheduled to begin a program with Seth Rollins when returning to WWE TV.
