Breaking News: The Shield Attacked and Injured Randy Orton
It appears WWE’s Apex Predator has become The Shield’s prey.
On the Dec. 14 edition of SmackDown, the rogue trio of Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns delivered a vicious surprise assault on Randy Orton, leaving the nine-time World Champion lying on a broken table in the backstage area.
After an examination by WWE medical staff, Matt Striker reported Orton has separated his shoulder, it was literally hanging out of the socket and needed to be popped back in. There was also concern that Orton may have suffered a concussion, which would require further evaluation.

Josh Mathews explained Orton had been taken to a local medical facility, he did not have a concussion and he may, in fact, be able to compete.
The sneak attack by The Shield came on the heels of another assault on the Dec. 3 episode of Raw. After emerging from the Greensboro Coliseum audience, they ambushed Orton in brutal fashion immediately after his victory over referee-turned-Superstar Brad Maddox.
