In response to several fan questions asking him to elaborate on the extent of his injury, WWE star Randy Orton posted the following on Twitter:

I'm getting alot of q's bout my back. What happened is I herniated a disc (leaked disc fluid) between my L4-L5 in my lower back. Had some strength loss in my left lower leg. Time off is to let the inflammation go down, and try and strengthen the muscles int lower back. The [Wade] Barrett barrage should have picked a steeper flight of stairs.
