Randy Orton was injured at last friday night’s Smackdown taping in Indianapolis, Indiana. He was in a Falls count anywhere match against Wade Barrett, where the finish of the match saw Orton thrown down a flight of stairs. Randy Orton’s Twitter account posted a message last friday night that said “Randy was injured at tonight’s Smackdown event and more details to follow on WWE.com as they become available.”
Now the next question has to be “Is he really injured?” So often when WWE superstars get injured it’s just so they can have some time off to spend with their family or so the WWE can workout the storyline. In Orton’s case it’s probably so the WWE can tweak the storyline a little bit. The World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan will be defending his newly won title against the Big Show. Once the Daniel Bryan vs. Big Show storyline is over you will probably see Orton make his return and be the new challenger for the title. So if you’re a Randy Orton fan, don’t worry, I’m sure that he’s just fine. This “injury” is just so the WWE can do some creative work and so that Orton can take a break and spend some time with his family.
