WWE Says Big Show Is Not Medically Cleared to Compete

Posted by DailyWrestlingNews.com on Tuesday, November 26th, 2013


- WWE’s website has posted a storyline update on Big Show, saying he has been sent home and is not cleared to compete after working Survivor Series and last night’s RAW. They wrote:

“Big Show was sent home and has not been cleared for further action because of the repeated head trauma he suffered at Survivor Series and on Monday night’s Raw, WWE.com has learned.

During the WWE Championship Match at Sunday’s pay-per-view in Boston, Randy Orton punted Big Show in the head to retain the title. According to ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann, the giant “did sustain some head trauma from Randy Orton’s punt. Thankfully, at that time his neurological exam was normal. He passed all of his impact testing, and he was able to get in the ring without any headaches, dizziness or problems at that time.””

WWE’s Dr. Amann noted that the trauma Show suffered on RAW caused concussive symptoms and while they do further testing he is not cleared to compete.

    What happened to that been banned because of the seriousness of concussion’s wrestler’s suffered when Ortron was doing it Orton should be facing consquences for using the banned move

    • Rich Francis

      That is the greatest move ever the punt to the head and if they are in charge they can undo a banned move. Plus really if that was such a dangerous move wouldn’t Big show KO punch be banned also.

        Y would it be the worst anyone hads got from big shows KO is a bruised jaw,the punt kik is a dangerous move if done by someone who can’t control there hits there’s a reason u see people get kod all the to me in mma etc but not a kik to the temple

  • alexx52

    the “head punt” and the “KO punch” are not wrestling moves.
    they are MMA moves.

    • allan
