Last night on WWE Monday Night Raw, Jeff Hardy ended his feud with Elias by doing a Swanton Bomb to the outside of the ring on Elias, who was positioned on a table.
The spot was dangerous on its own but Hardy appeared to have hit the back of his head on the steel steps and the referee immediately checked on him.
There has been no official update from WWE on Hardy but on Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer relayed what they heard from people who were backstage.
Alvarez said the following, : “The word I got was that he was okay. I don’t know what that means. I’ve heard that about a lot of people that have been banged in the head. I think to a degree, going through the table did slow him down but he still banged the back of the head on the steps.”
Meltzer said, “He hit the back of his head and he grabbed it right away and he was walking around like he was hurting real bad. That wasn’t a sell. He was looking to see if he split his head open, which it didn’t appear that he did but I had heard that there was kind of an expectation that he had a concussion but he hadn’t been diagnosed as having one because that wouldn’t come as yet anyway.”
You can see the spot in the clip below.
