He was checked out and was fine, but is still experiencing numbness and may not compete during Sunday’s event. We are told there’s a “small chance” he will wrestle. – PWInsider
Leon Ruff seemingly hit him the wrong way with a move. He got up, rolled out of the ring and walked to the back. Ref went after him..and said he couldn’t continue and that was it.
