Yahoo Picks Up Ziggler "Injury"

Yahoo has picked up on the story that Hugh Jackman allegedly injured Dolph Ziggler on Raw this week, however, as we reported, it seems that the entire injury angle is a work, and Ziggler was not in fact hurt by Jackman's punch. The Yahoo article notes the following:

"[Hugh] Jackman assumed the role of a temporary manager for wrestler Zach Ryder, an underdog who was about to take on the hated Dolph Ziggler. Ziggler appeared to be winning the match against Ryder when Jackman noticed that the ref (Can somebody remind us why they have refs in pro wrestling?) was distracted. So Jackman punched Ziggler right in the kisser. Check out the video from the match. Gotta be the first time a host for the Tony Awards did something so macho.

After the event, Ziggler tweeted that he had a possible fractured jaw thanks to Jackman's vicious punch."
