There’s a photo going around on social media showing Rusev in a wheel chair with crutches (see below). The photo was taken after last night’s Smackdown taping in Wilkes-Barre, PA. We got a report from someone at the Smackdown taping from a fan saying that Rusev may have injured his right ankle during his match with Ryback. The match ended abruptly with Ryback getting the win by disqualification when Rusev sent Ryback head first into the ring post.
Trainers came down to the ringside area and helped Rusev to the backstage area. Rusev is scheduled to be in the Intercontinental title Elimination Chamber match on Sunday. Obviously, if his injury is serious, then he will have to be replaced. We hope to have more on this soon.
