In overcoming Brock Lesnar and Dean Ambrose in Sunday night's Fastlane pay-per-view, Roman Reigns' secured himself a primetime role at WrestleMania 32.

Whilst it was a big weekend for the Big Dog, the same cannot be said for one of his fellow main roster Superstars. 


That's after Ric Flair, speaking on the most recent edition of his podcast, poured cold water on the talk of Randy Orton returning for the April 3 event at Dallas' AT&T Stadium.

"I’m told it won’t be ready," Flair said on Orton's injured shoulder, via NoDQ. "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, a 12-time World Champion, has been out of action since November 2015 having suffered a shoulder injury whilst taking out the garbage at home.

Having had a history of issues with the joint throughout his WWE career, his comeback has been a topic of debate for the WWE Universe ever since.

Unfortunately, it appears that, whilst The Viper is progressing towards full fitness, his return will not come in time to take part in this year's 'Mania.

With John Cena's status for the event also uncertain, and numerous other big names out injured or recently retired, the WWE would have been hoping Orton could lend some star power to the event.
