Randy Orton says he will be addressing his leg injury tonight during WWE’s Monday Night Raw.
On Sunday night, the 13-time WWE Champion sustained a leg injury while facing-off against AJ Styles during a live event in Hersey, Pennsylvania.
Fans at the match captured the incident on video and shared the footage on social media. In one clip posted by a fan, Orton is visibly in pain as he sinks to the ground clutching his left leg while surrounded by trainers.
The professional wrestler was unable to continue the fight and was helped off the ring and taken backstage.
