#5 WWE unhappy with Randy Orton storyline being leaked
It was rumored that Randy Orton had suffered an injury at a WWE live event in Hershey, Pennsylvania Sunday night. However, it was later revealed by outlets that the injury was, in fact, a work and merely part of a storyline.
While WWE wanted the fans to believe that Orton had suffered a legitimate knee injury, the word got out that it was planned. Sportskeeda's Tom Colohue has reported that WWE is very upset with the leak.
I'm hearing that a lot of people in WWE management are furious that Dave Meltzer leaked backstage information about this week's Randy Orton storyline.
One person told me that they believe that creative find it much harder to write when everyone already knows the ending.
While having a match against AJ Styles at the live event, the former WWE Champion appeared to be seriously injured and the referee had to stop the match mid-way, throwing up the 'X' sign.
While WWE may be upset, there are no plans to change or scrap the storyline and the feud between AJ Styles and Randy Orton will likely continue.
