May 21 update:
After a savage Steel Cage battle with Brock Lesnar at Extreme Rules, a physically battered Triple H was unable to continue in his match against impressive new Paul Heyman client Curtis Axel on Monday night's Raw.
On Tuesday, WWE.com spoke with WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson, who gave an update on the status of The Cerebral Assassin.
"After the pay-per-view match on Sunday, we advised (Triple H) on Monday that he shouldn't wrestle because of head and jaw trauma he suffered from the sledgehammer attack by Brock Lesnar," Dr. Sampson explained to WWE.com. "Obviously, we saw what happened Monday night: He went against medical advice and tried to wrestle. Luckily, he pulled himself out."
After further evaluation, Sampson said The Game is still exhibiting some post-concussion symptoms and he'll be held out of action until WWE's medical staff can conduct further neurological tests.
"At this point, the neurological exams are all normal," Sampson added. "But we will continue to employ neuropsychological testing to get a better idea how he’s doing mentally, as far as reaction time, thought process and so on."
Sampson noted the additional neurological tests will likely be conducted near the end of this week, once The Game's headache has subsided.
