Randy Orton Storyline Update, Xavier Woods’ New Gimmick Speculation, More


– To go with what Michael Cole said on Main Event, WWE updated their storyline injury report on Randy Orton this morning and noted that he has been diagnosed with a concussion by WWE physician Dr. Stephen Daquino.

Daquino told WWE’s website:

“Randy exhibited symptoms of a concussion after the Curb Stomp on the announcer’s desk. He also had some facial contusions. Currently he is not cleared to compete and his return timetable is undetermined.”

– There’s at least some speculation within WWE that Kofi Kingston and Big E will be involved in the “A New Day” gimmick with Xavier Woods. Big E and Kofi have not been featured in the new Woods vignettes that have aired.

– There was no dark main event after last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings in Albany.

– Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch vs. Bayley and NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte has been announced for this week’s NXT episode. Sami Zayn vs. Tyler Breeze in a #1 contender’s match will also take place.
