Kane assault at Royal Rumble sends Zack Ryder to local medical facility
ST. LOUIS – After Kane brutalized John Cena in their match at the 25th anniversary of the Royal Rumble event (FULL STORY), The Big Red Monster set his sights on an already-injured and wheelchair-bound Zack Ryder, hitting him with a devastating tombstone piledriver.
Following the assault, Ryder was rushed to a nearby St. Louis trauma center.
“The most worrisome aspect of that move [the tombstone piledriver] is a compression force to the cervical spine that does have the potential to fracture several vertebrae and render serious injury,” according to WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann.
“We’ve taken him to the hospital as a precautionary measure, at which point in time we’ll get cervical spine X-rays and most likely a CAT scan to make sure that’s there’s been no significant damage,” said Amann.
The attack comes less than a week after Kane chokeslammed Ryder through an arena stage and sent him to the hospital with a herniated disc (FULL STORY).
