On camera, Joe was not pleased with the decision, but reports from Dave Meltzer on his latest Wrestling Observer Radio confirms that this was a legitimate injury and decision by the referee. Wade Keller of the PWTorch also confirms via a backstage source that this was not a booked angle for the match.

According to Meltzer, the concern right now by people backstage is that it could be a concussion but no further word on the severity or specificity of Joe’s situation is known at this time. Stay tuned onto WrestleZone here for further updates.
