Nick’s Note: If the story turns out to be a work, I don’t see creative going with the “he survived” angle. Rather, I see them bringing Orton in for a surprise appearance at Summerslam and then having him cut a promo the next night on Raw admitting it was all a lie. This way the announcers can put over how “despicable” Orton is for creating such a heinous lie to the fans.
Nick’s Note: The whole point is that the misrepresentation of information is what is leading many to believe this is a work. It was written on WWE.com as well as announced by Cole last night on Raw that he traveled 300 feet. How could both Cole and wwe.com report this wrong if it was indeed a typo?
