Of course, this is all probably just alarmist talk.

"The Viper's" wife, Kim, announced on Twitter that the happy couple is expecting a baby girl.

Kim revealed that their daughter will be welcomed into the world around Thanksgiving.

Orton has been sidelined from the WWE since undergoing shoulder surgery in October.

“But in taking out the garbage to the curb this past week, the shoulder dislocated and he was in tremendous pain. He was to have an MRI done to find out the extent of the damage, and if he may need surgery, so his prognosis is not determined.” So there you have it. I know Orton is young still, but he’s been with WWE since 2002, and he’s seen many of his contemporaries come and go, such as Edge and Christian, both of whom had to retire due to injuries, as well as Santino Marella, who’s semi-retired now for the same reason.

Perhaps it’s time for Orton to start winding down his career, for his own health.

I’m sure WWE would offer him a trainer position or even a role as an agent or producer backstage.

I don’t think he’d be hurting for work, and he could even come back for the occasional match to pop a rating.

WWE star Randy Orton is currently out of action due to a shoulder injury that sidelined him.

While this was believed to be the result of simple wear-and-tear on Orton’s body that was further aggravated in a match.

However, medical details obtained by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter have revealed that there was a very mundane but specific cause for his dislocated shoulder. Granted, it’d be naive of me to believe that wear-and-tear on that shoulder from years of surgeries and subsequent injuries didn’t have an effect in weakening the shoulder to where something as menial as taking out the trash could lead to a dislocation.

“Orton, who has a history of shoulder problems dating back to early in his career, had been working of late on a bad shoulder, but not so bad that he couldn’t wrestle,” writes WON founder Dave Meltzer. If anything, I think it’s telling that a potentially major injury happened due to a relatively mundane task.
