If you watched WWE SmackDown Friday night or if you were in attendance for the taping on Tuesday night in Buffalo, N.Y., you saw The Big Show destroy Randy Orton with two massive choke slams and the Weapon of Mass Destruction. The Big Show was in control most of the match, even though Orton landed an RKO.
Seeing Randy Orton get completely dismembered, you may have gotten that foreboding feeling that, perhaps, he might be out of action for a while. That feeling may have been validated when The Big Show called out the World Champion, "Sheamus, I guess I'll be seeing you at Hell In A Cell."
Shortly after SmackDown went off the air, Alberto Del Rio added insult to injury by coming down to the ring to brutally assault Orton.
In case you are worried for Orton's health, do not fret.
Today, WWE Studios has announced the beginning of principal photography for the production of 12 Rounds: Reloaded, starring Randy Orton. This film, the second in a multi-picture deal with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download in the summer of 2013.
Earlier in the week, Orton was working with the stunt team and attending "EMT school."

Randy seems to be enjoying himself and making the best of this experience. Here's hoping that 12 Rounds: Reloaded turns out to be a great film.
