Randy Orton Medically Cleared, Christian Getting Pushed

Randy Orton Medically Cleared

Randy Orton is medically cleared and competed at this week's Smackdown taping in Corpus Christi, Texas. There had been questions about his status after he wasn't used on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw or next week's episode that was taped Tuesday night in Laredo, Texas. He was advertised for both shows.

After last week's Smackdown taping in Providence, Rhode Island, dot com reported he suffered a cervical strain and cervical neuropraxia. There was also a belief the injury was kayfabe to give him time off television.

Christian Getting Pushed

Another note coming out of this week's WWE TVs is the company is re-starting on Christian as a top babyface. Many had wondered how WWE would book the former World Heavyweight Champion after several months off due to injury.

Brooks Oglesby has complete taping results available at this link.

    Very excited about the latter comment. Christian has always been in my top three as far as performers in the company.

    Awesome news!!!

  • Justin Lal

    That’s great for Christian, but there was no reason for him to take those losses leading up to MITB.

    • TheBigKing1

      What losses??? He won damn near all of his matches since he came back, so I don’t know what you’re talking about.

  • Hercules Rockerfeller

    I just hope they commit to the push for Christian because these ppl seem to change their mind like they change clothes.
