It can happen at any time. Wrestlers can get injured in any match on any night and there is no way to guarantee someone’s safety. That is the kind of thing that you never want to see unfortunately there are some matches that make getting injured even more possible than others. Unfortunately that seems to be the case again, as a wrestler had to be helped to the back after some issues.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Not So Much: WWE Reportedly Makes Change To Wellness Policy, Partially Due To AEW
WWE presented a live event at Madison Square Garden this week, featuring a five way ladder match for the Intercontinental Title. During the match, Kofi Kingston tried a double stomp off of a ladder onto Santos Escobar, landing on his knee upon impact. Escobar was forced to be helped to the back after the match. There is no word on how long, if at all, Escobar will be out of action. Gunther won the match to retain his title.
This was nasty. Check out the stomp and Escobar being helped out:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that can happen to anyone and unfortunately there is little that can be done in the situation. Diving off of a ladder is a big enough risk in the first place and then it wound up being even worse. Hopefully Escobar is not banged up to badly, as that is the kind of injury that can cause a lot of problems for a very long time if things are serious enough.
What do you think of Escobar? Who should he face next in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
