As was reported yesterday WWE Superstar Ruby Riott suffered an injury to her left leg over the weekend while working a match at a WWE Live Event. More details have began to come out regarding the injury to Ruby’s knee.
It appears as though a contributing factor in the whole ordeal may have been the chaotic atmosphere backstage that night in Rapid City, South Dakota. Ruby was injured while working a match against Dana Brooke, whom she has not worked with much at all in the past.
On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the crazy night WWE experienced in Rapid City, South Dakota which resulted in the company losing two key Superstars on the RAW Roster – Ruby Riott, and also Bray Wyatt. Wyatt suffered multiple injuries after being involved in an automobile accident on his way to the airport.
Regarding Ruby Riott’s injury, and Bray Wyatt’s accident in Rapid City, Meltzer said:
“[Ruby Riott] got injured wrestling Dana Brooke on Friday night. So Friday night in Rapid City was a disaster. I’m not saying it was a bad show but so many people had problems getting into to Rapid City and then Bray Wyatt crashed his car going to the airport.”
“So the whole card had to be re-made. They ended up going with a Dolph Ziggler vs Seth Rollins 2 out of 3 falls match just so they could extend the time essentially.”
“So they had Dana Brooke and Ruby Riott in a singles match and they haven’t worked together. I don’t want to say at all, they probably have at some point. But whatever it was, Ruby Riott ended up with a knee injury when all was said and done. It wasn’t a match they’ve been doing on a nightly basis because Dana Brooke hasn’t even been wrestling that much usually she’s in the corner of O’Neal and Apollo.”
We will keep you updated as more information on the injuries to both Ruby Riott and Bray Wyatt become available.
