Randy Orton Injured at Smackdown Taping, Orton Denies Being Hurt

At last night’s Smackdown taping in Providence, Rhode Island, Randy Orton was apparently injured during the main event match with Alberto Del Rio.  Well, at least WWE.com said he was injured in this report:

At Tuesday night’s SmackDown television taping, Mr. Money in the Bank Randy Orton was injured during his match against World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio. 
According to WWE medical personnel, the nine-time World Champion suffered a cervical strain and cervical neuropraxia.

That is a fancy way of saying that he suffered whiplash and typically isn’t an injury that would keep someone out of action too long.

But the story has already been updated to include this sentence:

Though his official medical status is still undetermined, being the competitor that he is, Orton tweeted the WWE Universe to let them know that he’s fine.

Orton disputed what the WWE website was saying that he was injured and tweeted this:

Then in another tweet, Orton added:

If you click on the link for the entire message, he says:

No I mean every other site that runs the story and adds their 2 cents.

It looks like Orton wasn’t too fond of the WWE website saying that he was hurt and he really isn’t fond of other wrestling websites putting in their own opinions or jumping to conclusions.  And I cannot blame him considering the spotlight he is under and the amount of speculation that occurs, especially in this business.
