ROH News: Bully Ray suffers concussion at Death Before Dishonour
What's the story?
Bully Ray suffered a serious blow on the head from the edge of a table during Death Before Dishonour. He was hospitalised and possibly had a concussion from the blow. He tweeted to all the well-wishers thanking them but said he could not say that he was doing well.
In case you didn't know...
Bully Ray, better known in WWE as Bubba Ray Dudley, teamed up with the Brisco Brothers at the ROH pay-per-view to take on The Young Bucks and Adam Page for the Six Man Tag Team Titles.
The heart of the matter
Bully Ray called for a table during the match and was hit by it when Jay Brisco threw it at him. The edge of the table hit his head laying him out and the Young Bucks and Page got away with the victory. After the match, Jay Brisco turned on Bully Ray saying that they were already a great tag team and did not need him.
The effect of the table shot to the head may have been worse than it seemed at first as Bully Ray had to be hospitalised in the night. The blow may have resulted in a concussion and things don't look too good for him right now, as he himself refused to say that he was doing well. This does not look like a wrestling work at all, and at 46 he has had more than his fair share of head-related injuries.
Tommy Dreamer tweeted about his concern for Bully Ray as well and talked about spending the night in the ER with him.
Bully Ray will need some time to recover from the blow and in the meantime, the Brisco Brothers will look to continue on their quest for the tag team titles. Hopefully, Bully Ray will recover soon, and when he does, Jay Brisco will have hell to pay.
There is no doubt that Bully Ray is as tough as they come, and he revolutionised ECW and WWE with his hard-hitting offence as the Dudley Brothers. He will most probably be able to recover from this soon, but at the same time, he is growing no younger. At this age, maybe this is a sign to dial back from his hard-hitting style of wrestling.
