As for JBL, the WWE Hall of Famer left Monday Night Raw feeling some pain in his abdomen but, as a veteran of the ring, figured it wasn’t any more serious than anything he had experienced before.
However, he explained to WWE.com that he then woke in the middle of the night in excruciating pain and went to a local medical facility, where he was diagnosed with an abdominal wall tear. As a result, he had to undergo surgery on Tuesday and will rest at his home in Bermuda. He also confirmed that he will be at Monday Night Raw.
As a direct result of Lesnar’s assault, Booker T suffered contusions and general soreness, but no other injuries. The WWE Hall of Famer also confirmed that he, too, will be at Raw.
