The SummerSlam main event between Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton started off as a nice match but quickly turned dark towards its conclusion.
Lesnar started whaling down on Orton from the full mount, taking off his UFC gloves for a few punches before unleashing some truly brutal elbow strikes that ripped a gash deep in Orton's forehead.
That left The Viper laying in a pool of his own blood when the referees ended the match, awarding it as a TKO win to Lesnar. The WWE have no released a video of the medical attention that Orton ended up needing.

Before we post the video, we need to say WARNING, this is a rather graphic video of a man getting staples put into a very large gash in his head. If you are particularly squeamish or not good with injuries, then you may want to get someone else to watch it first and let them decide if you would be able to handle it.
Anyway, here you go...
This may well be the understatement of the century, but getting ten staples put into your forehead does not look like a very pleasant experience. Neither does getting elbowed in the face, to be honest.
All this proves is that Randy Orton is much tougher than any of us. Firstly, he agreed to finish the match by getting opened up the hard way rather than by blading, and secondly by not flinching at all during this.
It will be interesting to see what happens on Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live this week. Hopefully, Orton got a nice little bonus despite losing the match with Lesnar.
