A new tweet from the man himself has provided an update on Roman Reigns’ injury. As we previously reported, Reigns suffered an injury during a Steel Cage Match with Randy Orton overseas during a WWE Live Event in Glasgow, Scotland. It appears that it was a head injury, as Reigns recently posted a graphic image of the damage on his official Twitter account.

The muscle of The Shield is definitely going to require stitches above his right eye. Earlier reports claim that the injury occurred during a spot where Orton was to reverse Reigns’ signature Spear. One report claims that it looked as if Orton was going for a powerslam as the counter, one states both men collided head-to-head, while the other report claims Orton stuck Reigns with a stiff European Uppercut. Regardless, Reigns was definitely busted open and may have a concussion.
If both men did collide head-on, no details have emerged regarding Orton’s condition. WrestlingRumors.net will keep you up-to-date on Reigns condition as more details become available.
Holy crap that had to hurt. I hope he doesn’t have to miss much, if any, time in the ring as he recovers from that. Wow. Takes a man to get busted open the hard way like that and continue to perform for 5+ minutes.
