Randy Orton’s downward spiral
Heading into WrestleMania last week, Randy Orton was on top of the world. The Legend Killer had earned a spot in the World Heavyweight Championship Match on the grandest stage of them all – an opportunity most Superstars only dream of. The next several days, however, were far from perfect for Orton.
Not only did the cocky youngster suffer the pinfall at the hands of Rey Mysterio at WrestleMania, but he was also pinned again by Mysterio just days later on SmackDown. To make matters even more humiliating, Randy Orton also learned that he was being suspended due to unprofessional conduct. Many believe that series of events can be categorized as Orton’s worst week of his young career.
Tuesday night at SmackDown, Randy Orton’s career unfortunately continued its downward spiral. Following his King of the Ring match against Kurt Angle, the Legend Killer found himself hooked in the dreaded ankle lock, which resulted in a broken ankle.
At this time, little else is known about Orton’s injury. Be sure to check back here as more information becomes available.
