JR Blog: Orton’s Injury, His Future & CM Punk’s Stitches

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"Randy Orton’s apparent shoulder injury, I can’t be sure if it is a shoulder or the seriousness of the injury, really had a profound affect on the PPV. The Orton-Edge match ended as best it could by most standards. Orton, obvious and excruciating pain gutted it out to his credit. After this match the show seemed to valley somewhat until the final bout."

"If, big if, it is Randy’s shoulder, it won’t be the first time that RKO has suffered shoulder issues. Officials will know more Monday regarding Randy’s status. Hopefully this will be a deal where Orton’s off for only a brief period of time and won’t require any surgery to tighten up the shoulder. OU, now Minnesota Viking running back, Adrian Peterson had the same issues his freshman year at Oklahoma but surgery took care of his issues and he did not miss that much time…"

"I sure hope that Randy Orton is going to be O.K. as losing him especially hurts. Randy hit me with a text late Sunday night and he’s not even sure what the verdict will be until tomorrow. Raw is going to be an especially compelling, two hours of live TV Monday night."

"C.M. Punk got 13-15 staples in his head as a result of his hair raising and hair losing match to Rey Mysterio. This match essentially had to be restarted after Punk got busted open and needed medical care and restart it did! Punk resembled the Dynamite Kid and took his offense to a complete another gear. Very impressive stuff. Joey Styles Twittered that Rey gave Punk the Hulk Hogan haircut. That was just downright mean from ‘Stocky Balboa.’"

"Regarding the never ending tale, my own going business saga, I feel comfortable in saying that we honestly hope to have some definitive news regarding our next, professional chapter later this week. It’s nice to have options and the time to make an educated and timely decision. I am motivated to get this business behind me especially for my dear wife’s sanity. I’m personally past helping but I can’t or won’t continue to run her through the mill with the phone calls, etc that seemingly never stop."
