• WWE Announces Injury To SmackDown Live Star
Below is what WWE announced:
Xavier Woods suffers thoracic spine injury during The Bludgeon Brothers’ attack at WWE Fastlane 2018
“Xavier Woods has suffered an injury to his thoracic spine due to The Bludgeon Brothers’ brutal attack during the SmackDown Tag Team Title Match at WWE Fastlane, WWE.com can confirm.
“Our preliminary diagnosis is multiple thoracic contusions,” explained WWE medical personnel of Woods’ injury. “We’re currently in the process of having him evaluated with X-rays and possibly an MRI for any further damage, such as ruptured discs or fractures of the thoracic spine.”
Woods’ injury was sustained when Harper & Rowan leveled him with a Double Powerbomb onto the steel steps – the most savage blow from an all-out bludgeoning on both The New Day and The Usos – as WWE’s medical crew quickly swarmed ringside and loaded him onto a stretcher.
It is projected that there will be an update on Woods’ status sometime in the next 24 hours.”
• Update On Rey Mysterio’s WWE Return
As we noted before, former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio suffered an injury during a tag team match on Friday night at a Northeast Wrestling event.
Mysterio reportedly suffered a left biceps injury in a match where he teamed up with Flip Gordon to face the team of Joey Mercury and Caleb Konley.
Mysterio informed Mercury of the injury during the match and the finish of the match was set-up immediately with Mysterio nailing a double 619 and a Splash off the tope rope on Konley to pin him and win the match for his team.
Mysterio had heavy swelling on his left arm backstage after the match.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Mysterio suffered a grade one partial tear of the left biceps. While it’s not known how much in-ring time Mysterio is going to miss, it should be noted that the injury is not putting a hold on Mysterio’s negotiations with WWE about a return.
