Concussion wipes out Alberto Del Rio for No Way Out
“The Great Khali did his chop to (Del Rio’s) head, which resulted in a concussion for Alberto,” said Dr. Michael Sampson. “He didn’t get knocked out, but he did have a memory lapse and also disorientation and a neck compression, which the MRI came back as nothing but a sprain.”
Del Rio’s injury leaves open Sheamus’ dance card at No Way Out. It is at this point unclear whether Raw and SmackDown General Manager John Laurinaitis has a replacement in mind to face The Celtic Warrior. However, with WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon set to evaluate Laurinaitis’ job performance on tonight’s special three-hour edition of Raw SuperShow, which begins at 8/7 CT, a new No. 1 contender is expected to be announced.
