Daniel Bryan/Randy Orton update

Yesterday we reported that WWE announced that they had fined Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton for a planned chairshot to the head during their match on this past Monday’s episode of Raw.

We also stated that as WWE did not (and as of this writing, have still not) announced the fining on their Corporate website, there was speculation that the punishment was a work.

However, The Wrestling Observer (via EWrestlingNews) are claiming that the fine is indeed legitimate. The chair shot in question was during the top rope spot, though Orton did try and protect Bryan, and held back on the swing of the chair. However, WWE take chair shots to the head very seriously, and they’ve been banned by the company for the last few years, along with moves such as the piledriver and Orton’s punt kick to the head.

Of course, occasionally talent do perform these moves (the piledriver in the CM Punk-John Cena match in March, and the Orton-Big Show bout at Extreme Rules), but those moves are either extensively rehearsed beforehand, or the wrestlers in question are reprimanded.
