Randy Orton missed this past weekend’s WWE house shows in Mexico and was not on Raw Monday night due to a dislocated shoulder. The extent of the injury is not yet certain pending the results of an MRI, and when he can return will be determined on whether if he needs or doesn’t need surgery.
On television, they noted Orton was not in Mexico and not at Raw, and almost portrayed it as him no-showing. Later in the show, they gave the impression from an interview with Dean Ambrose that the Wyatts had gotten to him.
Orton has a history of shoulder problems from injuries earlier in his career.
The Orton & Dean Ambrose vs. Luke Harper & Braun Strowman match scheduled for Sunday’s Hell in a Cell PPV has been canceled, and a six-man tag match with Sheamus & Rusev & King Barrett vs. Neville & Dolph Ziggler & Cesaro was put in its place around the pre-show time.
