The Miz won a huge Fatal Four-way on RAW this past Monday. The A-Lister pinned Bronson Reed to earn a title shot against Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER at Survivor Series 2023. That said, the match wasn’t supposed to end as it did.

According to reports, The Miz and Ivar were supposed to pin Bronson Reed and Ricochet at the same time, leading to a double winner. Ricochet, however, was kicked out because he forgot the spot due to a concussion he suffered during the match.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter provided an update on Ricochet’s condition. Per the website, the former Intercontinental Champion has entered into a concussion protocol following his match on RAW last Monday.

“Ricochet is in concussion protocol as it’s believed that he suffered a concussion earlier in the match from a hurricanrana spot when his head bounced off the mat this week on RAW. He had no memory of anything that happened in much of the match, but other than that, was said to be feeling fine. He’s in concussion protocol, there is no time frame for when he will be able to wrestle again but the hope was it wouldn’t be long.” (H/T WrestleOps)
