— The storyline after Monday’s RAW angle was that Dolph Ziggler was “rushed to a local hospital” after suffering a “throat injury” during the attack he suffered at the hands of Rusev.
Yesterday, WWE has updated their official statement on Ziggler and noted that he is “out of action indefinitely” and is suffering from a “severely bruised trachea.”
WWE’s statement now reads: “Further evaluation by medical staff revealed that Ziggler is suffering from a severely bruised trachea. He was released from the hospital Tuesday afternoon after being monitored overnight to make sure his windpipe didn’t close. He is having issues talking and swallowing and will be out indefinitely.”
The injury angle was done as Ziggler and WWE continue to negotiate on a new contract. As of last word, Ziggler has NOT re-signed with the company.
— After suffering broken ribs at the hands of Brock Lesnar on RAW a couple of weeks ago, J&J Security member Jamie Noble was roughed up yet again this past Monday night.
Noble reportedly had to get stitches in addition to a broken arm he suffered while being attacked by Lesnar on RAW on Monday night in Chicago.
WWE.com posted an update on J&J Security, noting that Noble received 12 stitches after being cut by windshield glass.
Also, Joey Mercury suffered a bruised spleen and re-aggravated a prior, serious neck injury due to a suplex he took on the hood of the Cadillac.
Both J&J Security members are “out of action indefinitely,” according to WWE.
