Update On Randy Orton’s Injury

At WWE Money In The Bank, during the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match, Randy Orton got a nasty ladder shot to the head during a spot, that quickly busted him open. He would then roll out of the ring and have doctors attend to him. Later on during the match, it would get busted open widely again. WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann said,

“We had an incident during the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match where Randy was struck in the head with the ladder, which caused a laceration to the top of his scalp. I evaluated him immediately after the incident. He did not show any signs of a concussion, so what we did ringside was to stop the bleeding with a mixture of Vaseline and epinephrine – which is also known as adrenaline. By putting that in the wound and by applying direct pressure, we were able to get the bleeding to stop, so he could finish the match.”

He continued, “Immediately after the match, we brought him back to the training room where we thoroughly cleaned the wound and put 11 staples in his head. We are going to monitor him for any signs of neurological changes and we’ll follow up with him tomorrow at Raw in Hartford, Conn.”
