In case you didn't know...
During this week's 205 Live which took place in Newark, New Jersey, when Kalisto was selling an attack from Jack Gallagher and The Brian Kendrick, a water bottle thrown by a fan hit him in the mouth. The incident was caught on camera and shows the Cruiserweight star getting hit on the mouth by a bouncing water bottle.
The heart of the matter
Kalisto's wife's post on Instagram berated the fan who had thrown the bottle at her husband. She went on to express her disbelief at the fact that someone thought it was appropriate to ridicule someone who lives to entertain others for getting hurt.
"I am in disbelief with those that think it's ok to ridicule (poke fun of) someone who lives their life to entertain others. If it was you in the situation, you wouldn't be laughing now would you?!"
She went on to say that stitches were needed as well as an MRI and indicated that there was the possibility of a fracture.
A tweet by WWE's Talent Parking Coordinator indicated that the fan who had thrown the bottle was caught.

Hopefully, Kalisto's injuries from the incident were not too serious, and he will be able to continue to wrestle in 205 Live.
Injuries are part and parcel of the life of every wrestler. They take part in high-risk moves that could hurt them physically at any point in time. Injuries inflicted by fans on wrestlers, however, could be avoided if the fans behaved responsibly.
