Randy Orton Injury Update, Raw Supershow In Detroit, Upcoming House Show

- Wade Barrett claimed at last night’s Smackdown house show that he had injured Randy Orton so bad he would be out for six months.  Barrett’s comments were kayfabe as there is still no timetable for how long Orton will be out as of this writing.

    6 Months! Who will be SmackDown’s new top star with Orton gone for half a year. I can’t really see Bryan as a top star yet. Big Show?

    • Dave Barton

      The post says “Barrett’s comments were kayfabe as there is still no timetable for how long Orton will be out as of this writing,” so it may be far less than 6 months.

      And while I’m posting, “Refunds were offered because Orton was unable to work the show as advertised.” Seriously? Whatever happened to “card subject to change?” I like Orton, but its not like he’s the only star on SmackDown.

    christian will probably be back sooner now

    • RKO fan for ever

      Christian? Do we really need to see him run away, tail between his legs?
      He's scared for everybody, you name it; Mark Henry, Sheamus…ever Dolph Ziggler!

      Sounds very desperate to me, Christian…
      Tyson Kidd needs a push.

  • Bob

    Not to upset anyone but, I hope he choses to stay out for a while. I haven’t been very impressed with him lately and it seems like having another Cena with less promos. Maybe now they will let someone else take the top face role on Smackdown.

  • Daniel Bryan

    No matter what anyone says, I’m always going to be the best WWE superstar!

    • Randy Orton

      Shut it Daniel, I’m gonna be back in no time and I’m gonna be taking your little world heavyweight championship.
