    How did the botched rko cause the concussion???

    • Coopapalooza

      That’s just what I was going to ask? Clash of heads?

      • Ian P

        He did appear loopy afterwards but where was the impact? Has he ever had a concussion before and possibly hit his head just right and triggered something?

      • Dan

        Yea. It’s be different if he went to the mat weird but I don’t see how it would be from the botched rko either?? Weird…

  • Moose666

    Concussions are no joke. Love him or hate him, I hope he recovers well. I am with the previous posters wondering how it occurred during the attempted RKO unless he landed awkwardly (I have not seen the match since it was live.)

  • Mojo

    Not sure. Glad he’s getting time off though. That would not have been the case even five years ago.

    A concussion from the RKO??? I can see maybe him tearing something in his leg because thats what it looked like he did when he messed up but I don't see how he could get a concussion.

  • vickie's lover

    thank god .. i thought that DB is gonna get got :p

  • Matt

    I thought both Randy and Show handled the botch quite well. Both are complete pros.

    • Bruno

      Randy Orton is the second face of the company

  • Nicola

    You expect me to fall for that rubbish …Daniel Bryan will pay.

  • Adam

    Daniel bryan worst champ in wwe history

    • PikaPal4ever

      daniel brain is an excellent champ, he brings something that WWE was lacking, wrestling skills. He is
      the best wrestler in the WWE and absolutely deserves the belt. It's people like John Cena who can't wrestle
      and disgrace the WWE championship. Winning it 10 or 11 times without learning your wrestling craft is a
      travestry to the business. Cena is a bodybuilder that is good on the mic, daniel brian is the top wrestler in the wwe. Him and punk are the perfect champions, and it should stay like this for a long time.
