It was a brutal and shocking end to Randy Orton’s TKO defeat to Brock Lesnar at last night’s WWE SummerSlam.
Lesnar took a lot of his MMA experience with him into the ring and after a back and forth bout, including a wild RKO from Orton on the commentators’ table, Lesner went on to win the contest with a series of vicious elbows.
The final blow was an elbow to Orton’s head which resulted in ten staples. Maura Ranallo, WWE commentator, remarked Lesnar was “turning this into a horror movie” as blood began to poor from Orton’s head.
The referee ended the fight and gave Brock the win.
WWE.com later said the following:
“WWE.com has learned that Randy Orton has received 10 staples to close a laceration on his forehead following the brutal assault by Brock Lesnar that resulted in a TKO at SummerSlam.”
After the brutal attack many are questioning whether WWE SummerSlam 2016 went off script. So far, no other statement from the WWE has been released.
