Those of you who watched TNA's Against All Odds pay-per-view last night (Sun., Feb. 12, 2012) from the Impact Zone in Orlando, Florida, witnessed a scary situation with X-Division wrestler Jesse Sorensen.
During his match against Zema Ion, Sorensen took a knee to the head that knocked him out. The match went to a countout, as he was obviously unable to continue but the real scary news is what happened after.
Officials were worried that Sorensen may have ended up paralyzed but after being taken to a hospital and undergoing some treatment, Sorensen has feeling and movement in his arms and a tingling sensation in his legs, according to ProWrestling.net. However, he is unable to move his legs at this time.
His entire body went numb following the knee from Ion but he's slowly regaining all of his faculties.
His official diagnosis is a neck injury and there obviously remains a great deal of worry regarding his health and well being. We'll be sure to keep you updated with any news on Sorensen's status.
UPDATE -- Dixie Carter provides an update via ImpactWrestling.com:
"Jesse Sorensen has sustained a C1 vertebrae fracture with spinal cord edema. He is slowly regaining feeling and movement in his arms and legs. He wants to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Once we speak to the neurosurgeon, we will pass on more details."
Let's hope Sorensen recovers fully and TNA does the right thing and pays for his treatment.
