WWE Says Major Superstar Is Out For Sunday’s Elimination Chamber

WWE confirmed via its official website Tuesday that Randy Orton has been pulled from Sunday’s Elimination Chamber card due to an injury he suffered on Monday’s RAW broadcast.

“Randy sustained head trauma following his match with Big Show, in which Daniel Bryan interfered, and he was evaluated in the training room immediately afterward,” WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson told “Due to his symptoms as well as his neurological evaluation, he was diagnosed with a concussion. We will be doing more testing to see how he’s going to do as far as short term vs. long term.”

Orton was to be one of the six participants in the World Heavyweight Championship chamber.
