More No Mercy Fallout: Chris Jericho Suffers a Mouth Injury

Nick Paglino

It appears that Chris Jericho did indeed lose a tooth during his ladder match against HBK tonight. We reported that he had been busted open, but upon reviewing the tape more closely, you can see that he lost a tooth on the left side of his mouth towards the middle of the bout. We’ll have more on his injury status as it becomes available.

At this point the feeling is that Rey Mysterio was simply selling the chair shot he took from Kane when he told officials he couldn’t feel his legs. You could, however, hear Mysterio telling one of the guys to pull his knee pad down, which may indicate that he did hurt his knee during the fall, which would make sense as Rey just returned from a previous knee injury. Again, at this point, it is being considered a chair shot sell, but we will have more on this if/when it becomes available.

No word yet on why Matt Striker was replaced by Jerry Lawler in the opening ECW bout.
