Although detailed spoilers from tonight's (Jan. 22, 2013) SmackDown tapings in Sacramento, California, have yet to hit the Internet at large, WWE.com is passing along a bit of information on its website that indicates they're running an injury angle with Brad Maddox.
From the site:
WWE.com sources have learned that Brad Maddox and his personal cameraman, Carson, apparently have been victims of an attack during the SmackDown television tapings and have been transported to a nearby medical facility. Further details are very limited at this time.
Attempts to find eye witnesses to the attack or to make direct contact with Maddox or Carson have proven unsuccessful.
This comes on the heels of Paul Heyman finally accepting Maddox into his inner circle on last night's episode of Monday Night Raw in San Jose. It's definitely a kayfabe attack/injury but to what extent is unclear at this time.
Stay tuned and we'll pass along any updates to this storyline as it happens.
