There’s a good explanation for why the referee made the decision to end the Mickie James vs. Asuka match early during WWE Raw.
Nothing is confirmed by the company but the referee apparently thought she suffered an injury. Mick Foley says he heard that she may have suffered a shoulder injury.
Foley tweeted, “I’m hearing that @MickieJames may have injured her shoulder in tonight’s #Raw match – which would explain the quick ending to the match. If true, I’m wishing Mickie a quick and complete recovery…and hoping she gets another shot at the title.”
Again, that has yet to be confirmed by James or WWE but if that is the case then hopefully it’s nothing serious. James just returned to action after recovering from an ACL injury.
