The EMT’s put him in a neckbrace and wheeled him out, while Orton watched from the aisle.
Backstage, Vince McMahon and Shane McMahon were chatting. Vince McMahon said he had a premonition that something bad would happen to him. However, he was not worried about the match tonight, feeling it was something else. Shane said it probably was something he ate, and that he and Umaga would be around to help Vince later.
