Rusev was spotted after last night’s SmackDown tapings in Wilkes-Barre, PA sitting in a wheel chair with a brace on his leg. Correspondents from the event sent word that Rusev may have injured his ankle during his match against Ryback. The match ended abruptly with Ryback getting the win by disqualification when Rusev sent Ryback head first into the ring post.
Following the match, trainers came down to aid Rusev and help him to the backstage area. Rusev is scheduled for Sunday’s Intercontinental title Elimination Chamber match. We will keep you updated with his status when more information as it becomes available.
