“While competing against Jinder Mahal at a SmackDown live event at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Arena on Tuesday night, Ted DiBiase suffered an ankle injury that is expected to keep him out of action for several weeks.

“Ted sustained a Grade 2 tear [on a 3-tier scale] to his deltoid ligament, and he also sustained a calcaneal fracture, or a heel bone fracture,” WWE physician Dr. Michael Sampson told after the SmackDown Superstar was taken to a nearby medical facility for X-rays.”
