Roman Reigns Possibly Injured, Orton's SummerSlam Opponent & Skull Punt

– We received word from multiple fans who were in attendance at Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings from Omaha, Nebraska that Shield member Roman Reigns appeared to have hurt his ankle during a six-man tag match against Randy Orton, Big Show and Kofi Kingston. The spot occured while Reigns was on the ring apron with Randy Orton.

Reigns was seen limping around the ring during the end of the match and was helped to the back by a referee right after the finish. A post-show beatdown by the babyfaces took place but only Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins were involved.

– WWE is currently planning Randy Orton vs. Sheamus for SummerSlam in August. There continues to be speculation that Orton is turning heel soon, with the WWE Payback promo video┬áreinforcing this possiblity.

– Speaking of Randy Orton, he brought back his skull punt at Extreme Rules during his match against The Big Show. The punt was phased out of Orton’s move set a while back due to it’s risk of causing concussions to his opponents. Orton will not be using the move on a regular basis – and was done to play into the “Extreme” theme of Sunday’s pay-per-view.
