As previously noted, new Impact Wrestling world champion Brian Cage was rushed to the hospital for a back injury following his victory over Johnny Impact at the Rebellion PPV. The injury was legitimate and F4WOnline.com noted that it’s possible he went into the match with some back issues.
Cage commented on the injury with the following message:
Not how I wanted or ever imagined this incredible night would end. I've chased this moment and have dreamt about this my entire life. And to have this be the outcome, I'd be lying if I said it didn't break my heart. pic.twitter.com/Ogj7lD7L0x
