Randy Orton’s Injury, Shawn Michaels Update, WWE Superstars
- Matches for today’s WWE Superstars include Aksana vs. Maxine, WWE Tag Team Champions Epico & Primo vs. Santino Marella & Alex Riley plus Mason Ryan vs. WWE United States Champion Jack Swagger.
– WWE’s story on Randy Orton’s concussion from Monday’s RAW is that he suffered a concussion when Daniel Bryan hit him with the World Heavyweight Title but this is likely just a storyline reason. During the match against Big Show when the injury occurred, Orton can be seen getting up and his legs weren’t steady, after delivering the RKO to Big Show. Orton got up from the RKO slowly and immediately grabbed his head.
Backstage at RAW on Monday, nobody knew Orton was injured or at least they weren’t talking about it.
– When promoting Triple H vs. The Undertaker, a local ad for the March 5th RAW Supershow from Boston asks how will Shawn Michaels respond but doesn’t say what he will be responding to. It’s been speculated that Shawn will be the special referee for Taker and Triple H’s WrestleMania 28 match.
