On Raw, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins had a wild back-and-forth match that ended when Ambrose was curb stomped through some cinder blocks after being choke slammed on a table by Kane.
Ambrose suffered “extensive head and spine trauma” from the incident and was removed from the ring area on a stretcher.
The WWE’s Dr. Chris Amann told the company website after Raw that Ambrose refused medical treatment and he has been missing ever since.
From the new storyline:
“As you saw during the match with Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, toward the end of the match, Dean had sustained what we thought was pretty significant head and cervical spine trauma, so as a precaution we immobilized his neck, placed him on a stretcher and removed him from the ring area and brought him backstage. At the time of bringing him backstage, he was responsive and was refusing transport to a local medical facility for further evaluation. He had removed the straps and surgical collar, said he refused to go and we haven’t seen him since.”
