During the latest edition of his Wooooo! Nation podcast, Ric Flair said that Randy Orton’s shoulder will not be 100% by Wrestlemania and he will likely miss the event.
Flair said: “I’m told it won’t be ready. Randy’s shoulder surgery was a lot more serious than people understand. He even had it done by a different surgeon this time because he wanted to make sure that… If it pops out just pounding the mat…just imagine what would happen if he took a German from Brock (Lesnar).”
Orton had shoulder surgery on December 8. A return date was never reported by Orton or WWE. Orton denied that he also needed neck surgery.
