WWE News: Randy Orton Breaks Character At Survivor Series After Shane McMahon Injury
Randy Orton had a great night at the Survivor Series, one of the last two men standing for the SmackDown Live crew the final WWE Monday Night Raw vs. SmackDown Live match of the night. However, at one point in the match, Randy Orton proved that he has compassion with a very human moment in the match.
Cageside Seats reported that Randy Orton broke character midway through the match to help console the children of Shane McMahon who were sitting at ringside. This came moments after Roman Reigns accidentally legitimately knocked Shane McMahon out.

The moment happened during Shane McMahon’s second daredevil move in the traditional Survivor Series match. The first came when Shane came off the top turnbuckle to put Braun Strowman through the announcer’s table. That helped eliminate the big man from Raw early in the match.
The second daredevil moment saw Shane McMahon pull off a move he stole from Rob Van Dam years ago. RVD called it the Van-Terminator, which was a coast to coast leap across the ring. While the two usually used a chair or something in front of the opponent, in this case, Shane just leapt at Roman Reigns.

Randy Orton was outside the ring during the move and watched as Reigns stood up in the middle of Shane’s leap and hit a spear onto the SmackDown Live commissioner. Unfortunately, he kept too high and connected his shoulder into the head of McMahon.
It was clear that Shane McMahon was completely knocked out. His eyes were still open but there was really no one home. WWE officials had to help him to the back after his Survivor Series elimination as he was completely out of it after that point.

Just like at WrestleMania this year when Shane jumped off the top of the Hell in a Cell cage to try to put Undertaker through a table, he did it with his young children at ringside watching.
