WWE brought another episode of RAW this week and it appeared that Randy Orton didn’t make it through his time in the ring without suffering an injury.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez walked fans through Matt Riddle and Randy Orton’s match. The Viper was apparently injured during the match which could have changed the way he wrestled the remainder of the contest.
“I don’t know the extent of what happened, but Randy Orton hurt his shoulder. He was fighting out of the corner and Riddle went to give him an exploder. Randy didn’t take an exploder. He blocked it and he pulled back and did this very dramatic punch and he punched him and then from that point forward he could no longer use his right arm. He was throwing forearms with his left arm, it looked horrible. It was like that one day when he punched the mat and his shoulder went out.”
Dave Meltzer also noted how it was strange that Orton did a middle rope superplex instead of one off the top rope as he usually does. It appears that Randy Orton could be injured. He finished up the match, but there was certainly something going on with his shoulder.
