Rob Van Dam noted he'd miss this weekend's Impact TV tapings due to a broken rib injury he sustained during a match in Qatar after taking a Samoan Drop. You can see video of the injury below.
"It felt much worse than it looked," Van Damn wrote on Twitter. "It's a very physical job, so you never know. The fall to the floor was a surprise, but this one broke my rib on impact. Two weeks later today and I'm much better, by the way."
Finally, Wrestling Inc. was in attendance for yesterday's Face 2 Face Wrestling's Bruggadown event in Barbados where Brian Cage appeared. As noted, Cage tore his bicep and underwent surgery in late January.
Cage cut a promo initially saying he couldn't wrestle and wasn't sure when he'd be returning to the ring. He was then told he had to fight and beat up an individual using his good arm and kicks while also breaking the top ring rope in the process.
I'm off this week with a broken rib dude. https://t.co/nlmXVEtCYx— Rob Van Dam (@TherealRVD) March 7, 2020
