Randy Orton suffers head injury during ladder match

Former WWE World Heavyweight champion Randy Orton suffered a nasty gash on his head during the ladder match and needed a total of 12 staples to close the wound.

The injury happened when the ladder accidentally dropped on his head and WWE medics had to tend to Orton at ringside to try and temporarily close the wound so he can resume the match. Eventually the first attempt to close it wasn’t very successful as Orton still bled heavily towards the final moments of the match.

“12 count em 12,” Orton wrote on his Twitter, along with a close up photo of the wound and the staples that were holding it shut.
