Randy Orton was legitimately injured by Brock Lesnar during the Summerslam main event match. The referee had no choice but to call off the match and hand Lesnar the win, via TKO. WWE reported that Orton got busted open due to the elbow right into Orton’s head. He had to receive 10 stitches in his head following the match.
Since Orton’s injury was legit due to Lesnar’s vicious elbow it was thought that WWE will give sometimes off to him to heal up the injury. But, on the next episode of Smackdown Orton was immediately inserted into a feud with Bray Wyatt which came as a shocker. Why would WWE take such risks with a superstar dealing with concussions?
Randy Orton is a prime superstar in WWE and the company decided to go against the rulebook of their own. This was just to cover up Randy’s concussions which public was speculating since the lame finish of Summerslam. In addition, Randy was instructed not to open up about the head injury. He too gave wrong information to his family, friends and people close to him.

WWE did not involve him in physical encounters with Bray just to avoid the concussion fall-outs. They thought that Orton would be medically cleared within the time of Backlash. But, the plan backfired since Orton failed in the impact test. So, they decided to back off and replaced Orton by Kane.
Pro-Wrestling Sheet was the first to note that Orton was heading into the Backlash PPV with serious head concussions. It is also reported that if wanted Orton could have sued the company for forcing him into physical encounter that night despite concussions.

However, it seems that Randy Orton is ready to go now as he wrestled Wyatt in a live event from Springfield. He also competed against Eric Rowan on Smackdown which is a good indication of his health. He will compete in the rematch against Brock Lesnar on September 24th in Chicago, Illinois.
