"BREAKING NEWS: @WadeBarrett suffered an injury to his left arm during tonight's Battle Royal and was rushed to a nearby medical facility."
Barrett was taken to the back during the match with his arm in a splint as we noted earlier here on the site.
WWE UPDATE: WWE.com just posted the following:
WWE.com has learned that during Raw SuperShow's 10-Man Battle Royal, Wade Barrett suffered an injury to his left arm.
The injury occurred following Barrett and R-Truth's elimination from the contest. As Truth and Barrett recovered from their eliminations on the outside, Big Show tossed Dolph Ziggler on top of them from the ring. The three Superstars were knocked backwards and Barrett landed awkwardly on his arm.
Wade Barrett is being taken to a nearby medical facility for further evaluation. Stay with WWE.com for the latest updates on Barrett's condition.
BACKSTAGE UPDATE: As noted earlier, Dolph Ziggler was also shaken up when his shoulder and arm hit the table but was able to work a dark match main event so it's not that serious. R-Truth also needed help going to the back but should be OK. Kofi Kingston took an ugly bump but didn't appear to be hurt, while Cody Rhodes was limping badly from his match last night and was hurt when he did a kick and his leg gave out. He did get up and did several more spots.
