Fightful.com stated the following about Orton…
“We’re told that Orton sustained a deep bruise in the area, but initially at least there didn’t seem to be major damage that would sideline him for a long period of time.”
Orton did end up competing in a tag match with Riddle on the April 26th edition of RAW.
In regards to Orton’s storyline direction, Orton was scheduled to have a match against Braun Strowman on last week’s RAW. Fightful also noted that Riddle was originally supposed to continue his feud with Sheamus after Wrestlemania 37. However, Orton reportedly expressed interest in working with Riddle and plans were changed.
