On last week’s episode of SmackDown, Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson) defeated The Brawling Brutes (Sheamus & Ridge Holland).
Prince was shown with a sling in his left arm during a backstage interview with Kayla Braxton on SmackDown LowDown.
According to PWInsider, Prince separated his shoulder. As of this writing, there’s no word on how long he’ll be out of action.
Prince suffered this injury when he landed hard on his shoulder after being hit with a pounce from Ridge.
Fans on Social Media began blaming Ridge for his injury, since Ridge accidentally broke Big E’s neck with a Belly To Belly Overhead Suplex on the floor on an episode of SmackDown in 2022.
A fan even posted the following video:
what is happening with Ridge Holland????? 🤬

Ridge saw all the tweets and wrote the following:
“So to set people straight before they get all pissy! It wasn’t the belly to belly… it was a wonky landing from the pounce.
Out of my control.
Wishing Elton Prince a speedy recovery.”
Ridge later deleted his Twitter account after the abuse from fans continued.
