Randy Orton house show knee injury reportedly part of storyline


A knee injury suffered by Randy Orton at a WWE house show Sunday night is part of a storyline that will play out on TV according to Dave Meltzer.

Orton was wrestling AJ Styles in Hershey, PA, when it was said he landed awkwardly on his knee after Styles blocked an RKO attempt causing a stoppage of the match. Fan Jessi Davin captured when officials were tending to Orton after the match:

Styles and Orton had been working together on the tour with Orton going over Styles after hitting an RKO off a Phenomenal Forearm attempt. As of this writing, Orton nor WWE has posted to social media about the injury or any tie-in.

In 2018, he had surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his left knee and returned shortly thereafter. The 39-year-old recently re-upped with WWE for five years.
