Immediately following Kofi Kingston’s explosive showdown against Ryback during the Tuesday night SmackDown taping, the “Human Wrecking Ball” unleashed a massive post-match attack on the high-flyer – putting his war torn victim through three separate tables.
According to WWE medical physician Doctor Michael Sampson, Kingston would walk out of Edmonton with a c-collar neck brace as a result of this incident, strictly as a safety precaution.
Sampson further diagnosed that Ryback’s attack actually accelerating Kingston’s already-existing elbow injury. As a result, the three-time Intercontinental Champion will undergo surgery this Thursday and is expected to be out-of-action for 4 to 8 weeks.
