PW Insider reports that that referee Danilo Anfibio is okay. He was replaced by Jessika Carr in the match, but it was a totally worked spot.

The update is this – there was no injury.  It was a worked deal designed to add a different, unique cliffhanger leading into a commercial break, nothing more.  Anfibio is not really injured


WWE really pulled one over on fans. They are creating more cynical fans with this kind of booking, but at least it got people talking.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
