As we saw on Raw, WWE Tag Team Champion Big E suffered a storyline injury at the hands of Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson.

Below is a storyline update provided by WWE on Big E’s “injury”:

After Gallows & Anderson pulled Big E groin-first into the turnbuckle at the end of a post-match brawl between Gallows, Anderson and the entirety of The New Day, the WWE Tag Team Champion was taken to the trainer’s room. He underwent several tests and medical examinations, but WWE officials did not confirm the specifics or severity of Big E’s injury at this time.
