Morning Report: Why Did Randy Orton Miss Raw? Impact Tonight, WWE Network & More


- So WWE said on Monday that the reason that Randy Orton missed Raw is because he is on vacation. In fact, that is a lie, he suffered a collarbone injury in his match with Big Show on Smackdown. The decision was made that since Orton is a heel, it would fit his character more to skip out on the show.

No worries, he is expected to be at Raw this Monday that airs from Cleveland, Ohio.
