A match on WWERaw appeared to be stopped suddenly after Humberto Carrillo reportedly sustained an injury in a freakish landing.
Carrillo had been battling United States Champion Sheamus in Monday night’s episode of the company’s flagship show.
It follows several weeks of the two rivals clashing but without getting as far as having an established match together as part of the champ’s Open Challenge – which Carrillo first tried to answer a fortnight ago.
They finally got it on during Raw this week, but their latest altercation brought to a sudden and apparently unplanned halt following the painful looking incident.
With both athletes on the apron outside the ring, Carrillo attempted a sunset flip over the top rope into a powerbomb, with Sheamus due to land on his back on the floor below.
Something appeared to go wrong however, with the 250lb Celtic Warrior landing almost entirely across Carrillo’s left leg and knee.
The pair lay motionless for a moment before Carrillo gestured towards someone sitting beyond the view of the camera, seemingly indicating that he’d been hurt.

As replays backed up that likelihood, the match referee checked on both wrestlers and appeared to check in with officials backstage before calling a halt to the match there and then, with Sheamus handed the win.
While it’s difficult to be sure how much of what we saw was called on the fly and whether Sheamus had been due to win in some other fashion, it seemed evident that the blow the 25-year-old took wasn’t part of the show.
