What’s the story?

WWE Superstar Brian Kendrick suffered a broken nose and orbital bone during his match against Hideo Itami, but WWE says that the former Cruiserweight Champion won’t need surgery to fix those injuries.

In case you didn’t know...

Kendrick faced Itami in the second match of this week’s Monday Night Raw and was defeated after Itami used his finisher, the GTS. However, the GTS caused Kendrick to fall to the ground clutching his face in pain which led many to wonder whether he suffered facial injuries.

The heart of the matter

WWE informed fans on Dec. 26 that Kendrick was taken to a hospital after Raw and was revealed to have a broken nose and orbital bone sustained from the GTS. The following is the report WWE released with full details of the injury:

“During a match between The Brian Kendrick and Hideo Itami, Itami performed the GTS and during that maneuver, Kendrick was struck in the left eye and the inner aspect of the nose,” WWE Senior Ringside Physician Dr. Chris Amann told “A fracture was suspected, and he was taken to a local emergency care facility in Chicago where a CT scan confirmed a diagnosis of an orbital wall fracture and a minimally displaced nasal bridge fracture.”
The orbital wall fracture penetrated the maxillary sinus without muscle or nerve entrapment, Amann explained. At this time, the injury appears nonsurgical.

What’s next?

Despite Kendrick not needing surgery to repair his nose and orbital bone, there is no timetable regarding his return. Thus, he will likely be unable to compete on the upcoming 205 Live house show tour.

Author’s take

It’s great to hear that Kendrick won’t need surgery at the moment. We at Sportskeeda wish him the speediest of recoveries
