WWE legend Randy Orton may never step foot into a wrestling ring again, if doctors get their way.
Orton has been away from WWE television for several months after suffering a back injury in November last year.
He had surgery to fuse his lower back, and no update has been given since then.

Fans have been clamouring to see the much-lover and long-tenured multi-time champion make his return, but the silence has been deafening.
However, his father – fellow wrestling legend Bob Orton Jr – has now given an update on his son's future.
And it's doesn't look good . . . for the doctors.
Speaking to Sportskeeda WrestleBinge's Bill Apter, he said: “He's training, so we'll see what happens.
“I don't know, if he feels like going back or he feels like he's ready to go back, I think he might. “Then again, he's pretty well taken care of, I don't think he needs to.
“And I think the doctors have told him not to, but Randy will do what Randy wants to do.
“When you get in there and you've got people going crazy you just love it, so it's hard to leave.”
