Randy Orton unleashed his vicious side on Raw, and it was The Miz who paid the price, suffering a litany of injuries at the hands of The Apex Predator when their scheduled match devolved into an all-out brawl.
Competing in his hometown of Cleveland, Miz was ultimately carried out on a stretcher after Orton – who had battered The Awesome One into unconsciousness in front of his parents – trapped Miz’s neck in the crux of a steel chair and drove home with a knee drop, sending the former WWE Champion out in the care of paramedics.
“Based on the placement of the chair and the force by Randy Orton, Miz has a preliminary diagnosis of an upper thoracic injury,” WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann told WWE.com. “He has a bruised breastbone and bruised collarbone, he has difficulty moving his neck and arm and signs of a pinched nerve. We’re doing further tests on him right now and we should have more information after those tests are completed.”
A timetable on The Awesome One’s return has not yet been set, though the tests should bear results one way or another before the night is over.
“The tests are being done this evening and we should have a report back by tomorrow morning,” said Amann. Check back with WWE.com for more details on Miz’s condition.
