Randy Orton requires 10 staples after Brock Lesnar beatdown


In the main event of SummerSlam Sunday night, Brock Lesnar faced off against Randy Orton in one of the most anticipated matches of the last few years.

However, it ended in controversy when The Beast opened up The Viper, causing a TKO victory for the former UFC heavyweight champion.

Blood was spilled all over the ring as Orton was being attended to by doctors and after the match, it was reported that he had to have 10 staples in the nasty gash above his forehead. It was a pretty scary sight as Lesnar trounced all over the superstar formerly known as The Legend Killer.

In the beatdown last night, it seemed as though Lesnar gave Orton two downward elbows to the head that likely caused the laceration. They seemed to be on purpose, but you can be the judge of that.

Hopefully Orton will heal up quickly and will be able to get back in the ring pretty soon.
