Randy Orton Suffers Concussion & Might Not Wrestle On Sunday



Randy Orton suffered a legitimate concussion at WWE’s Smackdown house show from Madrid, Spain on Sunday. The injury occurred during the triple-threat main event match for the World Heavyweight title against Christian and Sheamus.

Orton was asked on Twitter why he didn’t wrestle on RAW, to which he responded:

“because I was knocked out in Spain. U can’t wrestle, or should i say, perform, the day after a concussion.”

In case Orton is not medically cleared to wrestle Christian at Sunday’s Capitol Punishment pay-per-view, the concussion angle WWE ran on RAW will be the explanation.

In the event that a WWE performer suffers a concussion, WWE’s Wellness policy requires that hey must pass an Impact Concussion Test.
