Three weeks ago, it was reported that Randy Orton did not appear on Monday Night Raw at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Although it is still unclear as to whether Bray Wyatt was directly responsible for The Viper’s absence that night, as initial speculation indicated, WWE.com can now confirm that Orton’s injuries are significant, and will keep him from stepping into a WWE ring for an extended period of time.
“Randy has suffered from a dislocated shoulder. He’s had chronic problems with his shoulder, and a recent MRI that was done found he has a Bankart lesion in his shoulder, some stretched ligaments and a partially torn rotator cuff,” WWE physician Dr. Steve Daquino told WWE.com. “At this point it’s a matter of when he dislocates the shoulder again, and not if. Surgery seems imminent, and recovery time for such a surgery would be four to six months.”
Randy Orton’s music plays and he comes to the ring. Randy says that even though he is from St. Louis, he loves Chicago. After tonight, he is going to be able to drive home and sleep in his own bed. Randy says that he came out and mentions that while Dean was in Saudi Arabia representing the WWE, he was fighting the Wyatts. Randy says that he heard that at Hell in a Cell, you are going to be in the fight of your life against Luke Harper and Braun Strowman. Randy mentions that he will be Dean’s partner. If they want to win this fight . . . Dean says he knows how they are going to win this fight. He says that they will do well. He has been fighting the Wyatts for years and the line to knock the beards off those goons starts behind him and he tells Randy to follow him. Randy says that Dean is a talented guy and has done a lot in a short time in the WWE. When you were dreaming of becoming a WWE Superstar, Randy says that he was hearing voices in his head. He does not play well with others and neither does Dean. If there is someone he can see eye to eye with on this issue, it is Dean. If they are to end the war on the Wyatts and they need to be smart and follow his lead. Dean says he is not real good at taking direction. Randy says he is not either and he is not someone who will stand on the sidelines while Dean has fun. Dean says that he does not know if he can trust Randy. Randy says that there are times when he cannot even trust himself.
Before Dean and Randy can continue, we get the NEW DAY. Xavier says they are sorry to break up this heartfelt moment, but they slayed and stood tall at the end of Raw and all you can talk about are the Wyatts? Big E says he thought they were AmBROS. Kofi says you are talking about what you are talking about when you should be talking about the New Day. Xavier says they did the impossible. They took out Dolph Ziggler and redefined the term ‘Show Off’. They took care of the Dudley Boyz and turned Dudleyville into a retirement community. They took out WWE’s crowning achievement . . . JOHN CENA. Big E tells John that they can see him. They saw him last week laid out in the center of the ring at the hands of the New Day. They do a Bear hand growl.
Kofi says they accomplished more in one day than any team ever ever ever ever ever ever ever did. Xavier reminds Dean-O that the Shield never did that. Big E asks if the Authority ever did? Oh No Did Evolution? No. What about Legacy? No. Xavier asks Randy how many groups has he been a member of and Kofi says that Randy gives a new meaning to Groupie. Big E says that they have a new slogan. Out with the old and in with the New Day. Xavier tells Randy to do what Derrick Rose should do and sit on the bench so they can bask in the greatness of the New Day. Kane shows up on the TitanTron and he says the inmates are not running the asylum, he is . . . until the Authority shows up. He has a poster in his office that says if you play with fire you get burned. He says it is a fire safety poster. Kane tells the New Day if they think they are the top team in the WWE, they can face Dean Ambrose and Randy Orton.

As people bet on who will survive, Will and his father (played by Eric Roberts) put together a team to go after the mastermind of the game, played by Stephen Michael Quezada. The Condemned 2, will be released by Lionsgate in select cities and On Demand on November 6.
