Now that he’s finally been cleared from the injuries he sustained last time he faced Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, Randy Orton is heading back into the ring against the Beast Incarnate again this Saturday, Sept. 24, in Chicago.
Paul Heyman, Lesnar’s advocate, is out here on the Facebook page of Allstate Arena hyping the match. And Heyman and WWE aren’t shying away from the controversy surrounding the blood outside and inside the Viper’s skull from his run-in with Brock in Brooklyn.
In fact, they’re turning up the volume on it, as Paul says Randy will need a priest to administer last rites after this rematch:
Following up a hot angle at a house show, and using one of Lesnar’s limited appearances, and drawing attention to real head injuries suffered in the course of scripted ones - all of that is weird to me.
But I am interested in what happens on Saturday night, so, mission accomplished, I guess.
