WWE Payback 2016 results: Enzo Amore knocked out, tag tournament finals stopped

New, 78 comments
UPDATE: Enzo has been diagnosed with a concussion, but all other tests were negative. Details here.

The New Day opened tonight's (Sun., May 1, 2016) WWE Payback pay-per-view (PPV) at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, with Xavier Woods inviting mayhem attempting to get Beyonce to slide up in his DMs (which are open, or were at last check). It was a cute way to lead into the opening match of the PPV, Enzo & Big Cass taking on The Vaudevillains in the finals of the tag team tournament to crown the next number one contenders.

The match was moving along as normal when Simon Gotch threw Enzo Amore to the outside, or attempted to. Enzo went to go under the ropes and hit wrong. He bounced his head off the mat and the replay appeared to show that he was knocked out.

The referee checked on him and threw up the "X" sign, signifying a legitimate injury. They rang the bell and a stretcher was brought out. While it's possible this was a work, it certainly looked like he was flash knocked out when they showed the slow motion replay and after they showed it, cameras cut to the announce table instead of showing medics tending to Amore as he was taken out on a stretcher.

We'll update when more on his condition is known.

For what it's worth, no winner was announced.
