The pro wrestling business is sometimes a lot more dangerous than some would think, especially when gang warfare is involved.
Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, and Sarah Logan wanted to make an impression in a big way on their first official night on the job as members of the Blue Brand’s locker room and boy, did they made a statement. After causing Natalya to head for the hills, Morgan and Logan focused on Naomi and it wasn’t a pretty sight.
They set the ring steps up against the barricade and placed Naomi underneath. Then The Glow was catapulted into the heavy steel steps and medical staff needed to be called to ringside.
The Total Divas star was actually stretchered away from ringside and many fans were wondering how real this segment got. But The Riott Squad paid little attention to Naomi following the attack because they focused on Charlotte Flair and ended things pretty convincingly by winning over the three former (and one current) Women’s Champions.
One day after the attack, WWE is reporting Naomi suffered a separated shoulder, cervical strain, and facial contusions due to this dangerous spot. Whether this is a work or not is beside the point. The fact is that The Glow might be taking a vacation from in-ring action for a while so these injuries can heal whether they’re real or not and the Riott Squad means business.
