Randy Orton looked like he suffered a serious injury after his match with John Cena on Raw. If Orton is hurt bad, this could impact on the WWE‘s plans going forward to WrestleMania XXX.
Orton has been built for many months as the No. 1 man of the company. He solidified his status even more by winning the WWE World Heavyweight title last year at the TLC PPV. He became the second unified champion — with Chris Jericho being the first — in WWE history, and Orton was set to face Batista in the main event of WrestleMania XXX.
WWE had already had this in motion for months, but their vision was altered during the Royal Rumble event. Batista was booed heavily so plans were discussed again. WWE had not planned anything yet, but the belief was that Orton would defend his title againt Batista and Daniel Bryan in a triple threat.
Orton appeared to have injured his shoulder yet again. Reports say that Orton immediately called for medical attention after his match with Cena was over. Orton has a history of shoulder problems and has had surgery multiple times.
If Orton is out, this would also impact WWE’s plans for the Elimination Chamber. Maybe they could add someone else in his spot so the winner fights for the vacant WWE World Heavyweight title at Elimination Chamber.
WWE has had to change its plans for WrestleMania XXX multiple times already. Hulk Hogan was going to wrestle, but he did not pass the company’s physical exam. CM Punk then walked out of the company as he was annoyed about their plans for him heading into WrestleMania XXX. If Orton is out too, I’m sure there will be a lot of stressed people over at WWE.
