Randy Orton Injured, Plans For RAW’s 20th Anniversary, WWE TV Taping Preview
- Randy Orton reportedly injured his wrist at Sunday night’s Tribute To The Troops tapings, according to PWInsider.com. Orton wrestled a tag match with Sheamus against Big Show and Dolph Ziggler at the show.
Orton did not work Monday’s RAW as a result of the injury, but is still advertised for tonight’s SmackDown. We’ll post an update when it becomes available.
- With the planned CM Punk vs. Ryback match at TLC put on hold due to Punk’s knee surgery, WWE is now planning to present the match at the 20th Anniversary RAW special on January 14th from Houston, Texas.
- Tonight’s WWE television tapings take place from Bridgeport, Connecticut. The top match scheduled for WWE Main Event is Ryback vs. Alberto Del Rio.
No matches have been announced for this week’s Smackdown, but we’ll get the final hype for Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view and the Big Show vs. Sheamus World Heavyweight title feud.
The advertised dark match main events are a title match between Big Show vs. Sheamus as well as Randy Orton vs. Alberto Del Rio. Considering the wrist injury Orton sustained on Sunday, it’s unknown whether this match will take place.
