As Brooks noted, Rusev was injured at last night’s WWE Main Event taping and it’s believed to be serious. The injury occurred during a match against Neville, in which was stopped and Neville was declared the winner. The following was tweeted out by people that were there:
Rusev suffered a lower leg injury at a Smackdown taping back in May that kept him off Elimination Chamber and out of action for the entire month of June. We don’t have confirmation on the injury he suffered last night but the word making rounds is it wasn’t good. Rusev wasn’t used for the Smackdown taping that proceeded Main Event in Phoenix, Arizona.
