Dolph Ziggler Suffers Concussion

WWE is reporting that Dolph Ziggler suffered a concussion during Monday's WWE Superstars taping in Baltimore, Maryland. The injury occurred after Ryback hit him with a clothesline. Ziggler was reportedly "having some confusion and disorientation" in the ring, and a concussion was confirmed later in the training room.

Ziggler suffered a concussion in May 2013 that was serious enough to make him wonder if his career was over. Ziggler is set to undergo ImPACT testing to determine the nature and severity of the concussion.

    Dear Overlords… That’s two serious ones in less than 9 months. Godspeed on recovery Ziggler, and hopefully you don’t have any lasting side effects.

    If this is Rybread’s fault in any way, I think that makes the second time Rybread has been involved in a Ziggler concussion, right?

    • Simon Veitch

      The last one was caused by Jack Swagger and that kick to the head prior to their ladder match. Based on the information given it’s really hard to say whether this was Rybacks fault or not. Depends whether the concussion was a knock to the head during the clothesline, like from Rybacks arm being too high and knocking him in the head as opposed to the upper chest. Or whether it was from Zigglers landing if he hasn’t tucked his head in correctly while bumping, which is always possible.

        Thanks for the refresher. Forgot it was Thwagger… 😉

          Don’t feel bad both Thwagger and Rybeard are both pretty dumb and clumsy.

          • Nostaljack

            Truth! If you look at the event, the first thing you think is “Rybread did it.” Ziggler might be responsible for what happened (we’ll have to watch and see) so I’ll hold my tongue until we see the show.

          • BIG M

            Fair enough.
            Ziggler does take some pretty stupid risks in the ring wouldnt surprise me if took a bump harder than he had to.

      • BlazeKing

        My friend has footage of the taping on his facebook. It’s private though… Anyways, the clothesline looked normal. The bump is where it happened. He oversold the move and he knocked himself loopy. Mick Foley warned him about that one time before.

  • Seth

    Just almost felt like eventually with the way Ryback is this was going to happen. Please Dolph…get healthy and take your time with it.

  • Lebron James

    This is happening a little too often with Ziggler. He might have to hang ’em up soon if this happens again. Brain injuries are no joke. Maybe he can try his hand at acting, or stand up which he loves so much. Much luck too Dolph, I wish him a speedy recovery.

    Hopefully he gets better soon! He has had such an unfortunate second half of 2013 it really is very disheartening hopefully he pick it up in 2014 and get the success he deserves

  • ceedot

    This is actually very sad. He is so passionate and determined to be one of the greats and he keeps getting hit down literally and figuratively. I honestly hope it doesn’t finish him for good and that he can actually have a chance to do what he does properly.

    Ryback is an unsafe Worker and needs to be Punished for this. Hand him to TNA i dont Care at this point
