WWE.com has confirmed that Randy Orton suffered a concussion last night at the RAW Supershow after being hit in the head with the World Championship Belt by Daniel Bryan. The report also confirmed that Orton will not be cleared to compete at this Sunday's Elimination Chamber PPV.
"Randy sustained head trauma following his match with Big Show, in which Daniel Bryan interfered, and he was evaluated in the training room immediately afterward," WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson told WWE.com. "Due to his symptoms as well as his neurological evaluation, he was diagnosed with a concussion. We will be doing more testing to see how he's going to do as far as short term vs. long term."
WWE has yet to officially announce a replacement for Orton, although it is believed that Mark Henry will take his place in the match.
