Survivor Series was certainly full of exciting moments. Roman Reigns spearing Shane McMahon out of his skin, James Ellsworth costing Braun Strowman, and, of course, Goldberg destroying Brock Lesnar in 86 seconds.

However, one thing that happened which most of the WWE Universe would have missed, was Randy Orton sporting a new piece of attire.

No, he hadn't changed his usual trunks, boots or knee pads, he was actually wearing an orange bracelet on his right wrist.

As already mentioned, not every spectator would have noticed this, but some portions of the WWE Universe did, and it's now been revealed as to why he was wearing that bracelet.

Orton was wearing it as a sign of support to his nephew TJ, who is currently battling leukemia.

The Viper was part of the five-on-five traditional Survivor Series match in the main event, and along with his partner Bray Wyatt, they survived until the end, ensuring SmackDown LIVE of the victory.

Despite Roman Reigns hitting Orton with a spear, it allowed Wyatt the chance to Sister Abigail the United States Champion and pick up the pinfall victory for Shane McMahon and co.

It was a match full of exciting spots and edge of your seat action, but Orton's beautiful gesture for his unwell nephew goes to show what a true gentleman he really is.

He also proved that during the match as McMahon suffered a nasty injury following a lethal spear from Reigns.

Orton was seen outside the ring telling McMahon's son that he was going to be okay, despite the nasty looking injury.

Well played Orton, well played.
