SummerSlam Ends With Brock Lesnar Tearing A New Hole In Randy Orton's Skull

A Brock Lesnar main event once again ended strangely and with blood, as the on-again, off-again MMA star delivered a very real elbow to Randy Orton’s head—one that opened up a massive gash.

Lesnar, true to script, repeatedly hammered on the head wound until being provided the opportunity to attack Shane McMahon—who helpfully arrived to erase any concerns that the bit wasn’t a work. (The elbow, though, is especially savage, and Lesnar’s pro wrestling career has been marked by his in-ring opponents accusing him of confusing scripted sports entertainment with real MMA.)
