On Tuesday afternoon, WWE.com caught up with WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann regarding Ryder’s condition. “When he was taken to the trauma center, the initial working diagnosis was vertebral fracture. However, after further review of the imaging studies, we determined that his injury is in fact a herniated disc,” Amann said.
“At this point, his neurologic exam is stable, so no surgery is anticipated at this time. We plan on getting him into rehab and treatment with anti-inflammatory medications, to help with the swelling around the nerve. We’ll be monitoring his progress.”
