Two weeks ago, one of professional wrestling's most shocking double crosses took place as Triple H took out Seth Rollins allowing Kevin Owens to become the new WWE Universal Champion.

With many expecting The Game to help his former prodigy to the win after hitting a pedigree to Roman Reigns just moments earlier, the shock switch is still yet to be answered for by the veteran.

Triple H's career has spanned an incredible 23 years with 20 of them coming in WWE where he has since dominated achieving almost every prize the promotion has to offer.

Despite being forced to step in and save the day in the build up to WrestleMania 32, The Cerebral Assassin is no longer a fully active performer.

A planned match was scheduled to happen on The Grandest Stage of Them All with Rollins taking on the veteran in Dallas, although a severe injury to The Architect halted all plans.

It seems set that Triple H will take on the former Shield member at some point in the future, although he will have to explain his actions first.

Clash of Champions is expected to be the earliest that the 14-time World Champion will make his first storyline appearance.

Randy Orton injury update

The Viper suffered a horrific but planned injury at the hands of Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam with the repercussions of such actions only coming to light several weeks later.

With Randy Orton scheduled to take on Bray Wyatt at Backlash, it was widely reported that he was not medically cleared although WWE continued to advertise the match well into the show.

The Apex Predator was indeed unable to compete and his place was taken by Kane, although the 36-year-old did make an appearance to deliver an 'RKO Outta nowhere' on The Eater of Worlds, costing him his victory.

While Orton got his revenge for the 'injury' that Wyatt caused him earlier that night, what is the situation with his current injury that has hampered his performance so far?

Currently, the veteran is now medically cleared to compete, after fully recovering from his expected concussion at the hands of Lesnar, he worked a WWE Live event beating Wyatt via pinfall.
