No Viper Time for Me
Yeahhhh, “Viper Time” (or ViperTime ) is a hashtag I use on social media whenever Randy Orton is out wrestling or cutting a promo (interview). I use it because his nickname is “The Viper.” Welp, it’s safe to say that I won’t be using that hashtag much, if at all, in the next four to six months. :(
I think I mentioned in a recent post that he was hurt and it may require surgery. He was born with hypermobile shoulders and has been working with the injury for a few months now. It finally dislocated when he was taking out the trash (and I don’t even find that funny like some fans do). The WWE FINALLY posted an update last night, and it looks like Randy is going to need surgery. :( He has a partially torn rotator cuff and some stretched ligaments. The doctor pretty much said he needs to get this fixed or he WILL dislocate his shoulder again. The recovery time is four to six months.
This means I will NOT be seeing him at the live event on December 30th. There is no “he may come back early” for me. He needs the surgery or it’s going to get worse, and he’s not a stupid guy, he’s going to get the surgery. He is also getting married in two weeks so I’m ASSUMING that he is going to wait until after the wedding to have the surgery done. This is the show I have third row seats for, and Randy was pretty much the main attraction for me, so this does sting a bit. I’m still going to the show, and I’m sure I’m going to have a blast, but right now it just sucks. :(
He may also miss Wrestlemania 32. Wrestlemania is basically the Super Bowl of wrestling and Randy has never missed one. If he can recover in four months, then he MAY be able to at least do a run-in or something, in my opinion. But nobody knows how that is going to go right now, and may not know until the recovery process begins.
It sucks to not have your favorite there for (about) half a year, but I do hope this takes care of the problem because his health is more important. I’ll be waiting to cheer him on when he gets back.
P.S. - I’m not responding to any “Wrestling is fake” type comments. Thanks.
I’m gonna get back to my work. Sorry I haven’t been around much. You all take care.
