Bobby Lashley suffered what looked like a nasty fall to the outside of the ring after a rope snapped during a WWE house show in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England on Thursday.
Lashley vs. Drew McIntyre was the main event of the first show in a short WWE European tour that will also encompass dates in London, Leipzig, and Paris. Bobby had his opponent on his shoulders at one stage, looking for a powerslam, but the Scot slipped out. The duo then hit the ropes at opposite sides of the ring when the top one snapped (upon McIntyre making contact), leading to Lashley tumbling to the outside.

The positive news coming out of this is that Lashley was able to finish the match. Tended to by Sami Zayn and other personnel after taking the tumble, Bobby was okay in the moment, at the very least, with Drew picking up the victory over him to close the live event.
Whether or not the situation will impact Lashley's participation in the remainder of WWE's European tour remains to be seen.
