During the Six-Pack Challenge main event on last night’s WWE RAW SuperShow, a spot between R-Truth and The Miz was botched, leaving R-Truth being assisted to the back and forced out of the match early. The moment occurred when R-Truth attempted an over-the-top-rope somersault plancha onto The Miz but he failed to stop his fall being broken. R-Truth landed on his back onto the matted floor, causing his head to whip and it looked like he was seriously injured.

During the commercial break, R-Truth was led backstage and when the show returned the announce team informed that the medical staff said he was unable to continue competing.

Following last night’s Raw, Joey Styles got on Twitter and said R-Truth was fine and thankfully did not suffer any injuries.

He wrote, “Breaking News! Somehow, @RonKillings is OK and has no injuries after flipping over the top rope, missing @MikeTheMiz and hitting the floor.”

This follows last night when former WWE superstars Lance Storm and Gregory Helms both got on to Twitter and said the injury could be serious and that The Miz bottled out of catching him;

“Wow @mikethemiz Way to puss out on catching Truth on that dive. Geez,” wrote Helms.

“It was a missed catch, while bad does not mean the guy is a dangerous worker, just shitty catcher.” wrote Storm. “That said Truth over rotated his dive which was why he landed on ass and whiplashed and banged head”

As of right now, R-Truth is not expected to miss much, if any ringtime. He is still set to compete in the Raw Elimination Chamber Match at the February WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view from February 19th. He is one of the superstars in the RAW main event for the WWE Title along with CM Punk, Dolph Ziggler, Chris Jericho, The Miz and Kofi Kingston.
