– Curvo was discharged from the hospital after undergoing successful surgery last week to remove a blood clot from his brain. Cuervo sustained the injuries after being hit with a concrete block during a match with Angel o Demonio at a Lucha Memes / Lucha Libre Boom co-promotional show in Mexico on November 19th. As seen in the video above at the 4:35 mark, Demonio threw the block from the ring down to the floor in an unplanned spot, hitting Cuervo in the back of the head and legitimately knocking him out for a few moments. Demonio was reportedly upset because he felt some of the chairshots from Cuervo earlier in the match were stiff. Demonio was suspended indefinitely by the Mexican Professional Boxing and Wrestling Commission due to the incident.
