The WWE has been having an absolutely torrid time with injuries over the past year or so, and it seems like things aren't improving.
With John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Sami Zayn and a hell of a lot more stars having to take prolonged time off from wrestling thanks to injuries, the WWE has struggled.
Things aren't getting better anytime soon, however, as another top superstar is facing a significant spell on the sidelines following a knock.

According to a report from Marc Middleton of Wrestling Inc, Randy Orton looks set to miss the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view this weekend thanks to an injury.
This isn't a storyline injury and it looks like Orton is legitimately hurt, despite both the announcers and Dean Ambrose teasing that the Wyatt Famil got to Orton and took him out so he couldn't compete.
Dave Meltzer noted on today’s Wrestling Observer radio that Orton has a dislocated shoulder and that also explains why he was not on the tour of Mexico.
Orton will have an MRI soon. He had been working with an injury and his shoulder got worse and eventually dislocated in the last week.
Orton has 'hypermobile shoulders' and has said in previous interviews that it isn't a good thing, making him much more susceptible to dislocations and fractures in the area, which is exactly what has hapened.
