WWE.COM is reporting that World Heavyweight champion Dolph Ziggler suffered a concussion during last night’s Smackdown tapings when he interfered in a match involving Big E. Langston and Jack Swagger.
“He [was] having some memory difficulties and a bit of a headache … he definitely has a concussion,” said WWE doctor Michael Sampson. “We’re checking him out, and going to be doing neuropsychological testing and just keep it monitored,” Sampson added.
All WWE Superstars and Divas who are on the receiving end of a concussion are immediately pulled out of action to avoid further medical problems. Those who suffer a concussion have to undergo a series of tests to determine when they can get back in the ring.
Ziggler is supposed to be involved in a triple threat ladder match for the World title at Extreme Rules against Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger however this injury will certainly shake things up a bit.
