MPACT Wrestling announced following last night’s Rebellion pay-per-view that new IMPACT World Champion Brian Cage was rushed to the emergency room after his match with Johnny Impact.
The belief is that Cage’s injury stems from the Spanish Fly that Cage took off the entrance ramp onto the floor as well as the powerbomb from the debuting Michael Elgin.
Cage’s fiancee Melissa Santos noted on her official Twitter account that Cage was indeed suffering from a back injury.
Update: Brian Cage won the Impact World Title at Rebellion last night, but it turns out that the worked a majority of that match in a lot of pain. He took a nasty bump to the floor very early on in the contest that resulted in him going to the er.
The Machine Brian Cage certainly felt a bit broken after his match against Johnny Impact. He later put out an update for his fans which featured a shot of him laying in a hospital bed. Of course, he’s a massive man for a normal sized bed, but now it looks like he has to wait to see what is next for his injury status.
Not the way I wanted to end the night or the picture/post I thought I’d be making. Very disheartening and disappointed how it went down.This is a moment I’ve dreamt about and have waited, trained, sacrificed and busted my ass for. And to say it doesn’t break my heart and sour my victory would be lying. Thanks for all the congrats and well wishes from everyone. Will see where we go from here….
