– The following is from the official Twitter account of Dixie Carter:
Jesse Sorensen was injured in the opening match of tonight’s PPV. He is currently being transported to the hospital. I will keep you updated

Sorensen suffered a head/neck injury after he caught the knee of Zema Ion after an asai moonsault from the middle rope from Ion. The referee threw up the “X” signal and trainers came out to ringside as the match was ruled a count out and Ion declared the winner. Mike Tenay and Jeremy Borash killed time as they tended to Sorensen at ringside.
9:20 PM EST Update: Jesse Sorensen was knocked out cold after taking a knee to the head. There has been a considerable amount of concern for him as Kurt Angle, Karen Jarrett and Hulk Hogan have taken to their Twitter accounts to rally support. Sorensen was unable to finish the match as the referee was forced to go to an impromtu count out.
