Orton Concussion Update, Fake Obama’s Identity, More



- As previously reported, World Heavyweight champion Randy Orton’s status for Capitol Punishment was up in the air until just days before the event. Orton suffered a concussion last weekend and had to pass an “impact concussion test” prior to being medically cleared to compete on Sunday night. WWE officials were said to be very concerned that Orton would not be able to wrestle and had discussed several other scenarios for the SmackDown title match just in case. Orton received his medical clearance on Friday and defeated Christian to retain the title.

– Also at Capitol Punishment, WWE featured a President Obama impostor, played by comedian Reggie Brown. The fake Obama had a few backstage segments during the show as well as an in-ring segment where Booker T taught him how to do the spineroonie.

Reggie Brown appeared at a GOP convention on Saturday night and had to be pulled off stage during his set due to event organizers thinking he was going overboard with his racially-charged Obama-bashing jokes.
