WWE has announced a storyline fine of an undisclosed amount of money for putting his hands on WWE Official, Adam Pearce, on last week's RAW.
Before the main event, Pearce informed Orton that he would have to defend his WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre on tonight's show. Orton wasn't too pleased with that information, grabbed Pearce, and shoved him up against the wall.
Below is WWE's statement:
WWE Champion Randy Orton has been fined an undisclosed amount for putting his hands on Adam Pearce last week on RAW, WWE.com has learned.
