WWE legend Randy Orton is said to be ‘coming along’ well after undergoing surgery.
Following reports he has recently had fusion surgery on his lower back, there has been plenty of concern for his future, with some people speculating his in-ring career could be over.
However, his dad ‘Cowboy’ Bob Orton Jr. has given a more positive update and suggested fans can expect to see him back in the ring.
During a virtual signing for K & S WrestleFest, he said: ‘He’s coming along. I see him maybe once a week or so. But he’s coming along. He’ll be back in there before you know it.’
Bob also weighed in on a potential dream opponent for Randy if and when he returns, and pointed to the American Nightmare Cody Rhodes, given the history both families share in wrestling.
He added: ‘I think Cody [Rhodes versus Randy] would be a hell of a match. I wrestled Dusty a lot of times so, might as well keep it ongoing.’
Last month, Randy’s wife Kim Orton has marked their seventh wedding anniversary on her public Instagram account by sharing a sweet selfie of them together her husband in bed in a hospital gown, with half of his face obscured by a mask.
She didn’t reveal when the photo itself was taken, but she did hint that there was a funny story to be told one day.
In an emotional and romantic post, she wrote: ‘7 wonderful years with the man of my dreams. You’re bat s**t crazy (but so am I) I trust you, and you trust me.
‘We could conquer the f**king world together (if we feel like it) but for now I just want you to be my daddy and me to be your momma and raise our beautiful children together as one big happy family.
‘FAMILY♥️LOVE♥️LOYALTY♥️ we have that tattooed on our bodies because it’s the most important thing to us. ME, YOU, OUR FAMILY AND CLOSE FRIENDS, that’s all that matters.
