Looks like Randy Orton could be out up to six months with a back injury. The injury will be furthered in a match with Wade Barrett on Smackdown Friday (taped Tuesday) where Barrett tosses Orton down a flight of stairs.
Here's the latest from our friends at 411 Wrestling. The WWE announced Orton's absence Wednesday night.
It's a big blow to not have Orton at Wrestlemania XXVIII in Miami.
