WWE Posts Update on Randy Orton’s Status Following RAW Injury

– The following comes from

“WWE medical personnel have confirmed that Randy Orton suffered a concussion on Raw SuperShow when World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan smashed Orton over the head with his title.

“Randy sustained head trauma following his match with Big Show, in which Daniel Bryan interfered, and he was evaluated in the training room immediately afterward,” WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson told “Due to his symptoms as well as his neurological evaluation, he was diagnosed with a concussion. We will be doing more testing to see how he’s going to do as far as short term vs. long term.”

Orton will not be cleared to compete in the World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber Match this Sunday.”

    Orton should just take the time off to heal. He shouldn’t worry about losing his spot, he’ll take it when he comes back.

  • Sean Mooney

    Sounds like he really got injured somewhere, and they’re using the title shot as the reason for it.

  • ogitchida

    WELL so much for making rany orton the champion just in time for mania… looks like creative oughtta get to work..

  • CC

    My bet is that he came back too early from the previous injury and has now aggravated it. Wrestlers and WWE need to realise that rushing a return can cause long term problems if someone comes back before they are physically ready.
    We have seen from Randys early days that if he comes back early, he ends up injured again.

  • Kris

    damn why cant they just tell us the truth

  • rko

    Damn randy is facing durability issues lately. He should just take time off to heal and let someone else grab his spot for a while.

  • Bill

    Someone told me he tore his pectoral muscles, kinda like Cena in 2007. He probably won’t be at WM if that’s the case.

  • Matt

    lol i just read instead of mark henry they went with santino in the chamber…. 😀 😀

  • Matt

    Probably covering for whatever injury he has now, his back again since they brought him back early for the rumble?

    Who the fuck knows, now they replace him with mark henry, who himself is coming back early from injury, talk about the long term health of your workers… nice just nice….

  • Maltese

    Setting up for Wrestlemania guys!

  • Mabry

    i hope this has nothing to do with Bryan actually, cause if it does, well, just ask mr. Kennedy….

  • Knightcon

    Glad to see my email got read

  • Sammo

    Weird. I wonder if Orton is carrying a legit injury somewhere… he was probably my tip for the chamber.

  • fivo goes west

    Hopefully the WWE takes advantage of this and finally let’s db have a set of balls and make him look like a legit champion instead of another one of their cookie cutter heel champions that always run away and can only win via dq. funny bryan wears a shirt that says everyone taps but can’t make a damn person tap ever.

  • Prince

    Lol, its a storyline dude. He got the concussion during the match. Bryan barely hit him with the title.

  • Philzibit

    Damn, I thought it looked like Bryan hit him harder than he should have.
