Sting Legitimately Injured

According to the Wrestling Observer Sting was legitimately injured in his match with Seth Rollins, after he took the corner powerbomb. Dave Meltzer notes that he’s believed to have seriously injured his neck. The speculation is that this could be a career ender.

Fan Jumps Rail

A “fan” jumped the rail last night just after Reigns and Ambrose entered the ring. He was quickly tackled and didn’t make any contact with the wrestlers.

This comes after a string of similar incidents, including Reigns getting hit with a replica MITB briefcase, somebody hopping the rail near the ramp and coming at Ambrose with a sharp object, and somebody attempting to walk down the ramp with Rollins during RAW.

WWE released the following statement:

“WWE takes the safety of our performers very seriously and any fan entering the ring area will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

RAW Preview are hyping the following 5 points for tonight’s RAW:

– Why has the Demon Kane returned?

– Is Ryback hungry for a rematch against Owens?

– How will Charlotte celebrate her Divas Title victory?

– What might The Dudley Boyz have planned for the tag titleholders?

– Will Cena’s newly won U.S. Title be on the line?
