Below is the update RVD gave regarding his injury:
“I’m off this week with a broken rib dude.
It was the Samoan Drop at the end. CRUNCH‼️?
It felt much worse than it looked. It’s a very physical job, so you never know. The fall to the floor was a surprise but this one broke my rib on impact. 2 weeks later today and I’m much better, by the way.”
