nZo, best known by his former ring name Enzo Amore, had to be rushed to a hospital following a botched spot during a professional wrestling match.
ENZO WAS KNOCKED OUT FOLLOWING A DDT HIT DIRECTLY ON A CONCRETE FLOOR
The news was first reported by Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez on the latest episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio. The accident happened at a show promoted by Southwest Wrestling Entertainment (SWE). In the event, Enzo faced Ivan Warsaw in a singles match.
The match was supposed to extend outside the squared circle and the former WWE superstar was supposed to receive a DDT on the floor. Nonetheless, the spot did not go according to the plan, and due to timing error Enzo soon found himself taking a devastating bump. The consequence was him getting knocked out from the impact of the DDT. The DDT was reportedly hit on a concrete floor with negligible or no padding at all.
The match had to be terminated then and there, and the former WWE superstar was soon placed on a stretcher and moved to a nearby medical facility.
“Enzo was doing a show tonight and apparently took a DDT during a spot outside and got knocked unconscious, and the story was he was taken to the hospital, and hopefully, he is alright. That’s all we know right now,” Bryan Alvarez stated.
Dave Meltzer added more information to the story. Apparently, it was his first match for SWE, and the match took place before the intermission of the event.
“Yeah, that’s all we know, was for the SWE promotion. He was doing his first match against a guy named Ivan Warsaw, took a DDT on the floor, and was knocked completely out. They had to put him on the stretcher, and he went to the hospital. That was before intermission, and I haven’t heard since. That happened. So hopefully he is okay, yeah,” Meltzer said.
