As seen on RAW, Rusev hit Dolph Ziggler several times in the back with a crutch and then put the crutch under Ziggler’s throat then proceeded to send the other end of the crutch into the mat of the ring. Ziggler was rushed to a local hospital after the attack.
WWE.com has since updated their story by writing the following:
Further evaluation by medical staff revealed that Ziggler is suffering from a severely bruised trachea. He was released from the hospital Tuesday afternoon after being monitored overnight to make sure his windpipe didn’t close. He is having issues talking and swallowing and will be out indefinitely.
