WWE is going through a horrible time in terms of injuries, as several superstars have been sidelined in the past year.
In fact, all the champions from WrestleMania 31, are now out injured. Nikki Bella, Daniel Bryan, Tyson Kidd and Cesaro, Seth Rollins, and the most recent, John Cena.
Randy Orton is also out of action due to a shoulder injury which would require surgery and would sideline him for four to six months, as reported in the past by WWE.com. According to Wrestling Inc, it was Dave Meltzer that also said The Viper may need to have neck surgery after he recovered from shoulder surgery.

According to Wrestling Inc, it was Dave Meltzer that also said The Viper may need to have neck surgery after he recovered from shoulder surgery.
Orton addressed his health and WWE status recently on his Instagram account in the comments section. He said the rehab for his shoulder is going great, however, he doesn't need neck surgery.
He said: "I see many of you think I need neck surgery. I heard weeks ago that Meltzer stated it as a fact. I don't keep up with gossip, so I didn't think anything of it. As far as my shoulder, I was cut on 12/8. Things are ahead of schedule and I'm pumped to get back to work.
"As far as my neck, and I'm only debunking this 'fact' for the sincerely concerned fans, I DONT need neck surgery. Remember, unless you hear about it on WWE.com, you really should take everything you read online concerning pro wrestling with a grain of salt."
Despite The Viper being ahead of schedule, it still may be a stretch for him to be at WrestleMania 32 this year. The recent injuries by several WWE superstars will definitely lure off the company from rushing anyone back early and possibly do worse to the future of their careers.
