Although there were two ladder matches featuring a total of 14 wrestlers among them, and said 14 wrestlers all did various crazy things putting their body on the line in the name of our entertainment, only one came away injured at tonight's (June 29, 2014) Money in the Bank pay-per-view (PPV) in Boston.

And it wasn't even for a big spot.

Indeed, Randy Orton was knocked off a ladder and his head clonked into it, opening a gash on his head. He was immediately attended to by ringside doctors, who did an incredible job closing the wound and allowing him to finish the match.

They did such a good job, in fact, that if you weren't paying close enough attention, you may not have even noticed anything was wrong. provided an update from Dr. Chris Amann:

"I evaluated him immediately after the incident. He did not show any signs of a concussion, so what we did ringside was to stop the bleeding with a mixture of Vaseline and epinephrine - which is also known as adrenaline. By putting that in the wound and by applying direct pressure, we were able to get the bleeding to stop, so he could finish the match. Immediately after the match, we brought him back to the training room where we thoroughly cleaned the wound and put 11 staples in his head. We are going to monitor him for any signs of neurological changes and we'll follow up with him tomorrow at Raw in Hartford, Conn."

Ultimately, Orton's pain was John Cena's gain and the Internet sheds another tear.
