Randy Orton has been with the WWE for the last 20 years. Orton is a 14-time world champion and is a future Hall of Famer. The Viper was on the receiving end of a botched frog splash last night on RAW.
According to Fightful Select, Orton took a rough frog splash from Montez Ford of The Street Profits. The former WWE champion was clearly in pain and the participants had to quickly resort to the finish due to his condition.
“We’re told that Orton and Riddle were originally slated to win the match with a series of RKOs, but because of Orton’s condition at the time, it didn’t happen. As we mentioned on the post show review last night, initial indications were that it was just a stinger or a tweak, but WWE plans on monitoring the situation as a lot can change overnight.
“Since then, we’ve heard it was a bit of a combo of Orton getting the wind knocked out of him, his ribs crushed, and not being able to move. We’re told there was no heat on Montez Ford on the spot and it was considered a ‘shit happens’ situation.”
Ford previously provided an update on Orton’s condition and said that everyone was healthy after the match. It is worth mentioning that Orton and Riddle are currently involved in a tag team feud with Alpha Academy.
