Randy Orton OUT INJURED Until SummerSlam?! | WrestleTalk News May 2018


Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News,
I am Luke Owen. Headline: Big Cass Injured? After suffering a torn ACL in August last
year during a program with Enzo Amore and The Big Show, Big Cass made his return from
injury at the Superstar Shake-Up last month following WrestleMania 34. But while the company was on their European
tour, a report came out that suggested Cass may be injured once again. WrestleTalk viewer Dennis Rooth got in touch
to let us know that Cass went down during a tag match with The Miz against Daniel Bryan
and Tye Dillinger, saying he was almost crying in the corner. Another attendee to the show told NoDQ.com
that, “Cass looked super upset and p***ed off. Ref took him backstage after match thru side
entrance, not the ramp.” And Twitter user Xavier Hacking posted up
these videos, which clearly sees Cass limping as he works the match and as he walks out
after. Cass got into his biggest singles program
so far against Daniel Bryan when he returned which resulted in a loss at Backlash – reportedly
due to Cass going off script on an episode of Smackdown Live prior to the show – and
he’s set to face Samoa Joe tomorrow for a place in the Money in the Bank ladder match
in June. While an injury could derail all of that,
it appears that this was all a work – as Cass worked the same tag team match again the following
night in Munich, Germany and WWE’s Twitter account posted a video of him getting tended
to after the match to promote the Money in the Bank qualifier on Smackdown Live. Dave Meltzer wrote in the Wrestling Observer
Daily Update that Cass was just selling the angle with Daniel Bryan shot last week, where
Bryan targeted his knee in an attack. Headline: Randy Orton Out Until Summerslam? An injury that is very real however is the
one suffered by The Viper, Randy Orton. Orton was one of the big names missing from
WWE’s European tour, and WWE.com posted why he wasn’t there saying he had, “undergone
successful surgery to repair a medial meniscus tear in his left knee.” Orton himself noted in the article, “I’ve
known I needed the surgery since late last year, but I’ve been waiting for the right
time to get my knee cleaned out. Right now was the right time.” Orton has just currently finished up a program
with Jeff Hardy over the United States Championship, and hasn’t been seen on TV since his loss
at Backlash. In the Wrestling Observer Daily Update, Dave
Meltzer wrote that Orton is, “at this point scheduled to return in two months.” If that report is correct and Orton is recovering
for the next couple of months, that means he will miss next month’s Money in the Bank
from Chicago, and July’s Extreme Rules from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and won’t be back
in the ring until Summerslam in August. Well, that’s me all done for now. As mentioned on last week’s WrestleRamble,
I’m off on holiday for a couple of weeks and won’t be back until June. I’ve packed my swim trunks and my flippy
floppys, got a couple of books to read and multiple episodes of Talking Simpsons downloaded
– I’m all set. Thanks for watching everyone – see you in
two weeks. Oh hi there, who are you? Wait, what are you doing? WHAT? NOOOOOO!
