Well, Miz got a ton of heat for his botch on R-Truth (that didn't lead to an actual injury), does that mean Big Show is going to catch similar heat for this?
During the battle royal main event on Raw last night (Mon., Feb. 20, 2012), Big Show tossed Dolph Ziggler out of the ring to a waiting Wade Barrett and R-Truth on the outside. Except Barrett wasn't quite ready for it and his arm ended up getting bent way too far in the wrong direction.
The X sign made an appearance and everyone suddenly looked very concerned. Ziggler also appeared to take a bad bump on the announce table but he was ultimately okay and worked the post-television dark match. Truth also walked off on his own power.
As for Barrett, WWE.com has an article up on his status:
WWE.com has learned that during Raw SuperShow's 10-Man Battle Royal, Wade Barrett suffered an injury to his left arm. ... Wade Barrett is being taken to a nearby medical facility for further evaluation.
Watching it back on replay, it looked really ugly and there's no telling how severe this will ultimately be. It really sucks for Barrett because he may end up missing out on WrestleMania 28, which is just 40 days away now.
As for Show, this comes on the heels of Randy Orton suffering a concussion in a match against him on Raw last week. And really, he's been on a tough run as of late, missing a few spots, generally lumbering around and either directly or sometimes indirectly, causing injuries to top guys.
Don't expect Show to head for a Miz level burial here but he should definitely be held accountable.
