• WWE Issues Medical Updates On Jeff Hardy & Dolph Ziggler

WWE issued the following medical updates on Jeff Hardy & Dolph Ziggler after Hell In A Cell 2018:

Dolph Ziggler medical update

“After falling off the side of the Hell in a Cell structure during Roman Reigns’ Universal Championship Match against Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler was looked at by WWE medical personnel, but he refused to go to a local medical facility. Instead, Ziggler left the AT&T Center under his own power alongside tag team partner Drew McIntyre.”

Jeff Hardy medical update

“Following his brutal Hell in a Cell Match against Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy was tended to by EMTs at ringside. Cathy Kelley then reported on Instagram that Hardy complained of severe abdominal pains backstage, prompting WWE medical personnel to have him transported to a local medical facility.

Michael Cole later reported that Hardy began coughing up blood while en route to the facility. Once that subsided, Cathy Kelley went on to report that Hardy would be kept overnight for further observation.

The following morning, however, WWE learned that Hardy walked out of the medical faculty on his own during the night.”

• Brock Lesnar – Universal Title Storyline Update, Braun Strowman Reacts To Lesnar Attacking Him

WWE provided the following storyline update on Brock Lesnar possibly going after the Universal Championship again and a possible appearance from “The Beast Incarnate” on tonight’s RAW:

How will Lesnar’s return impact the Universal Title picture?

“Brock Lesnar was told he couldn’t have a Universal Title rematch at WWE Hell in a Cell, so he destroyed Hell in a Cell singlehandedly. The Conqueror kicked the Cell’s door off its hinges and decimated Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman, bringing their title bout to an unprecedented no-contest decision.

While it’s hard to imagine Strowman won’t demand restitution, The Beast clearly isn’t about to let the championship race pass him by. Could the record-setting titleholder return to Raw to once again demand his rematch? And if he does, will Acting General Manager Baron Corbin have the guts to turn him down?”

Below is how Braun Strowman reacted to Lesnar’s attack:
