Finish To Royal Rumble Match Changed; Orton’s Concussion

Ben Johnson


— The Royal Rumble finish was originally intended to go longer than it did, which figures into Batista’s display of frustration after the match. The Orton/HHH match went slightly long, which forced WWE to rush to the ending. Initially, there was set to be a longer exchange between Batista and Cena.

— For those who didn’t know, Randy Orton did not really suffer a concussion in his match. reports that sources are led to believe its role in telling the story during the match with HHH will expand to help formulate a new direction for Randy Orton, although that is not totally confirmed. Even Orton believes his character has gotten off course and will need to make some changes to remain at the top of RAW.
