Big Show Storyline Update: Concussion Symptoms, Not Cleared For Action
WWE.com has published a storyline update on the Big Show’s condition following the “repeated head trauma” he suffered in the main events of Survivor Series and RAW.
WWE’s ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann told WWE.com that Big Show “did sustain some head trauma from Randy Orton’s punt. Thankfully, at that time his neurological exam was normal. He passed all of his impact testing, and he was able to get in the ring without any headaches, dizziness or problems at that time.”
The trauma that would have caused a concussion in another competitor,” he explained, “did not, in fact, cause any concussive symptoms in him.”
The article states that Big Show underwent a full medical evaluation after RAW.
“The trauma Big Show sustained Monday at Raw did, in fact, cause concussive symptoms,” said Dr. Amann. “At this point, we are doing further testing, and he is currently not cleared to participate in any in-ring competition.”
To sell the injury storyline, Big Show did not compete at Tuesday’s WWE SmackDown tapings.
