Strowman returned and attacked Reigns inside the ambulance. Strowman then flipped the ambulance with Reigns inside. WWE issued the following kayfabe injury update on Reigns:
Roman Reigns suffers numerous injuries following Braun Strowman attack
LONG ISLAND, N.Y. — Roman Reigns was brutally ambushed by Braun Strowman on Raw Monday night, resulting in cracked ribs, internal injuries and a possible separated shoulder.
After The Monster Among Men’s initial attack, which culminated in Reigns being thrown off a loading dock while strapped to a gurney, The Big Dog was loaded into an ambulance by EMTs. However, Strowman reappeared and continued the brutality by tipping over the emergency vehicle with The Big Dog still inside it.
Reigns was then rushed to a local medical facility in a second ambulance for evaluation. Strowman, meanwhile was forced to leave Long Island, New York’s Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
Despite this brutal attack, WWE doesn’t plan Reigns to sell the injury for a long time and he’s scheduled to work this weekend’s WWE Live Events.
