Drew McIntyre had a rough night on Monday. Randy Orton took out his frustrations from SummerSlam and delivered three punt kicks to the WWE Champion. Just one has been enough to put men out for months but McIntyre took three.
Now, WWE has provided an update on his condition. According to a report from WWE.com, McIntyre has suffered a hairline jaw fracture as a result of the attacks from Orton. Here is their official statement:
