Randy Orton appeared to have suffered a knee injury at last night’s WWE house show in Hershey, PA, but the injury is reportedly fake and is part of a storyline that will play out on TV, according to Dave Meltzer.
During a match against AJ Styles last night, fan reports said that Orton appeared to land awkwardly on his knee when going for an RKO and was unable to continue the match. Medical staff checked on him, then he was helped to the back, unable to put weight on his left leg.
