WWE did an injury angle with Randy Orton on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, effectively writing him off television. As CJ Blaze noted here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, a stretcher job was done after the show that aired on the WWE Network.
Dot com followed up on the angle with a kayfabe article published at this link, claiming “locker room speculation” was that he suffered a concussion. They promised a further update on Tuesday.
In reality, Orton is not going on WWE’s European tour because he’ll be filming his starring role in The Condemned 2. We wrote about Orton’s status prior to this week’s Raw, noting WWE would have the opportunity to write him off if that’s direction they choose to go. Filming for The Condemned 2 will begin on November 11, 2014 in New Mexico. His status for Survivor Series is uncertain.
