WWE had been advertising Randy Orton vs. Braun Strowman for last week’s Raw, but it didn’t happen due to a decision made by Vince McMahon.
Orton worked a singles match with Matt Riddle on the show instead. It was reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Orton suffered some sort of a shoulder or arm injury during the match.
Orton did continue through the match. Since that time, there had been no update on Orton’s status.
Fightful Select reported today that “Orton sustained a deep bruise in the area,” and the initial belief was there was no major damage that would sideline him for a long period of time.
There’s no word yet on whether the belief about Orton’s injury has changed. It will be interesting to see whether Orton appears on tonight’s Raw.
