UPDATE: Cesaro suffers eye injury on Raw

WWE.com has confirmed that Cesaro suffered an eye injury during his match with Kofi Kingston on Raw thanks to what WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann described as a poke from Kingston’s finger that rendered the eye red and swollen.

“We did some specialized testing and staining of the eye which showed he did have a scratch on the right side of the eye, which is called the sclera and not on the cornea, which is the clear part of the eye,” said Amann. “We’re going to keep his eye patched for the next 24-48 hours, use some artificial tears and re-evaluate him tomorrow prior to his match [against Dolph Ziggler on WWE Main Event].”

UPDATE (7/1/14, 2:50 p.m.): The King of Swing has been cleared for active competition, following a re-evaluation by WWE medical staff. "He's feeling much better and other than a little bit of bruising around the eye itself, everything is normal on his exam," said Amann on Tuesday. "He will be cleared to compete."
