Dolph Ziggler Suffers Concussion
WWE.com posted an article that World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler suffered a concussion during Big E. Langston's match with Jack Swagger during the tapings of "Smackdown" this week.
Ziggler reportedly suffered the injury when he was hit in the face in the early part of the match after he interfered in the contest. WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson examined him afterwards and determined that he was "having some memory difficulties and a bit of a headache" and diagnosed him with a concussion.
While WWE.com has posted storyline injury articles in the past, concussions are a different situation and the company would likely not fabricate the injury, particularly with the Extreme Rules pay-per-view in less than two weeks. If Ziggler misses the event, the legitimacy of the injury will become clear.
The Wrestling Observer also reported that the WWE has pulled Ziggler from all in-ring action until he can pass a test that would clear him to compete.
