WWE is reporting that Billy Gunn sustained hemoptysis after the 6-Man Tag Team Match against The Shield. According to a report filed on dot com, the injury occurred on the triple powerbomb spot with Road Dogg.
“At the very end of the match, Billy sustained a powerbomb maneuver,” reported WWE’s Dr. Chris Amann. “After that maneuver, he started to develop hemoptysis, which is the medical term for coughing up blood.
“We brought him back and evaluated him immediately, checked his oxygen, his blood pressure … everything was stable,” Amann continued. “We got some X-rays of his chest, which did not show any evidence of a collapsed lung, so our diagnosis right now is that he most likely ruptured a small blood vessel that caused bleeding to the airways and, subsequently, coughing up blood.”
WWE notes they’ll continue to “monitor him closely for the rest of the night.”
