Randy Orton could be back in a WWE ring in the very near future.
The information comes after it was reported that there was no update regarding his in-ring future. Orton underwent surgery in November on a troublesome back injury amid very real fears that he may never wrestle again.
However, it seems that he is currently gearing up for a return to the ring.
Orton was recently pictured visiting Boone Centre Inc. (BCI) in St Peters, Missouri on February 5th, looking in incredible shape. While an unlikely source has now seemingly given another hint.
Mexican bootmaker Jose G. Sanz recently answered a series of questions from wrestling fans on social media, with the answers being shared on his Facebook stories. During the exchange, Sanz was asked which wrestler had the biggest impact on him out of those who order his products.
He replied that although he hasn’t made them yet he has received an email from Randy Orton about making some boots for his return. Sanz also commented on making boots for Bray Wyatt and Drew McIntyre, while it seems he will also be making Cody Rhodes’ boots for WrestleMania. You can see a screenshot of his Facebook stories below.
“I haven’t made them yet but Randy Orton contacted me via email for his return. Currently, Drew McIntyre and Bray Wyatt are some of the biggest superstars. Today I received an order for boots for Cody for Wrestlemania.”

When Did Randy Orton Get Injured?
Randy Orton hasn’t wrestled since the May 20th, 2022 edition of Friday Night SmackDown when he and Matt Riddle lost their Raw Tag Team Titles to The Usos.
After the match, Orton and Riddle were beaten down by The Bloodline and the former World Champion hasn’t been seen on WWE television since. Details around Orton’s absence remained thin on the ground but it was reported that he was struggling with a back injury that had been progressively worse.
