• WWE Issues Storyline Injury Update On Kevin Owens
WWE issued the following storyline injury update on Kevin Owens after the brutal ending to his Steel Cage match against Braun Strowman at Extreme Rules 2018:
Kevin Owens sustains multiple injuries at WWE Extreme Rules
“After a 20-foot descent through an announce table during his Steel Cage Match against Braun Strowman at WWE Extreme Rules, Kevin Owens sustained multiple injures, including bruising of the shoulder and back, bruised ribs and a neck strain. He will be re-evaluated later in the week.
The injuries occurred during the final moments of the match, when Strowman hurled Owens from atop the cage, sending him through an announce table at ringside, technically winning the match by leaving the structure first. Owens was then rushed to a local medical facility for evaluation.”
