Fernando was splinted and taken to a local emergency room for precautionary reasons, according to WWE trainer Larry Heck. He underwent X-rays to determine the nature of his injuries and after reviewing the X-rays on Monday, WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann was able to confirm a diagnosis. Amann said:
"Fortunately there are no fractures. However, he has a pretty significant left ankle sprain, as well as a sprain of one of the ligaments of the knee. We put him in a boot, he's on crutches, and we expect him to be back in three to four weeks."
Amann added that Fernando would be undergoing rehab at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando.
