Remember that SICK clothesline Batista gave Orton weeks ago. Well, check out what happened at this house show in Canada:
Torch: Batista defeated Randy Orton following a simple clothesline as Orton appeared to suffer an injury. Very short match after Batista did a duck under of Orton's maneuver he connected very hard on Randy Orton's face and neck with a clothesline. Orton went down in a heap and Batista made three attempts to bring Orton to his feet failed....at this point the ref stepped in a visibly looked to Batista and motioned an early finish. Paramedics assisted Orton for several minutes in the ring...after about five minutes Orton was finally helped back to the backstage area.
Rajah: Next was a very quick and painfull match involving Randy Orton vs. Batista. Batista is monsterous especially in person. The match was ended very quickly with Batista actually knocking Randy Orton unconcious . Batista then pinned him to get the match over with. Randy Orton lyed in the ring and soon the E.M.T's came out with a stretcher. Orton finally managed to get up and waved off the stretcher.
Well, I can imagine taking shots from Batista won't be painless. And since Batista looks semi-demonic as it is, I guess HE's the real possessor of the Clothesline from Hell - not Bradshaw.
Randy Orton Update - PWTorch.com reader Chris Sharpe of St. John's, NF writes: While I was at the WWE show at Mile One Stadium, a friend of mine happened to be at the Emergency Room last night when Orton was there. He didn't seem in bad shape at all and was walking around with all of his gear trying to get out of there to make it to the airport because their private jet was leaving at 11:30 p.m. There was no neckbrace, or any visible signs of injury. If it was a serious head injury, like a concussion, he wouldn't have been worried about flying out because the doctors would not have cleared him. Also, was I the only one that noticed him roll to the outside after a flying lateral press on Smackdown? Maybe he should be breaking in against cruiserweights before he moves to the heavyweights, like they done with Christian.

I'm sure if Bautitsta continues to injure his opponents the WWF will get on him about his style, too. Problem is, they can't feed him to the Acolytes like the WWF did to Saturn last year after he beat the crap out of some jobber.

Or how desperate the company would be to have him. One or the other. Or both? The fact that he ever won one at all was a minor miracle so I have my doubts that he'd have been a favorite, even if everything had gone right medically and all.
