WWE Confirms Randy Orton's Injury
By Raj Giri | May 23, 2010 |
As Orton was pounding the mat teasing the RKO, he could be seen noticeably wincing in pain. The referee then motioned the "X" signal and both wrestlers went outside the ring. Edge continued the bout by kicking Orton, avoiding working over his upper torso. Edge then tried spearing Orton, but Orton moved out of the way and Edge crashed into the barricade. The bout was ruled a double count-out. Following the ruling, Jerry Lawler speculated that Orton had suffered a shoulder injury, given that Orton has a history of shoulder problems.
