Bengaluru, Aug 24: Randy Orton was legitimately injured by Brock Lesnar during their mega match at Summerslam and the referee had no choice but to call off the match and hand Lesnar the win, via TKO.
WWE previously reported that Orton got busted open due to Lesnar’s elbow right into Orton’s head. He had to receive 10 stitches in his head following the match.
Going into the total contrast of the PG era, Lesnar created havoc with blood in between WWE’s TV tapings. It is also reported that Lesnar went too far and beyond the script while attacking his opponent.
The elbows were not supposed to be real as planned but Lesnar got out of his mind and took things like he does during his MMA fights.
WWE Creative was not at all happy with this incident and Stephanie McMahon took the next step by fining the beast $500 for his outrageous actions.
Apart from that, Brock Lesnar was also temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission following his drug test, post UFC 200 fight against Mark Hunt. He was tested positive twice on June 28th and July 9th for the substance, hydroxy-clomiphene. It is an estrogen blocker substance and falls under the category of the banned drugs.
Lesnar was suspended from MMA fights only which means he cannot appear in the UFC events, as of now. WWE has not issued any statement whether he will not be seen on WWE scene or not.
The beast incarnate returned to the WWE scene prior to the WWE Summerslam event to have a "15-years-in-the-making" match against Randy Orton. He gave a dominant performance in the match and finished his beat-down by giving a vicious F-5 to the Smackdown General Manager, Shane McMahon. This supposed to be his upcoming feud with Smackdown’s commissioner. However, no fall-outs have been brought by WWE, till now.
Here's the official statement from WWE
"Brock Lesnar's brutal SummerSlam main event assault on Randy Orton has cost The Beast Incarnate $500.
Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon confirmed on Monday night that Lesnar would face repercussions for his vicious actions against The Viper at The Biggest Event of the Summer. The WWE Universe learned on Tuesday's SmackDown Live Pre-Show that the $500 fine was set by Stephanie.
Is the fee enough to satiate SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon's peace of mind for the heinous act inflicted upon one of his show's top Superstars? Is this seemingly paltry sum an insult to Shane and SmackDown Live?"
