Matt Hardy posted the following to Twitter this morning following his nasty-looking bump Saturday night at Extreme Rising where he hit his head and began convulsing; Hardy did eventually get up after being tended to by EMTs and went to the back under his own power.
“Thanks so much for all the kind words & thoughts-they’re very appreciated. I’m feeling much better, I’ll let u know more when I know more.”
Here is our original report from last night:
According to sources, word is that Matt Hardy hit his head when he was shoved off the top to the floor by Luke Hawx during the main event of the Extreme Rising iPPV. According to several readers who were ringside, Hardy got sick after hitting the floor and appeared to be going into convulsions. While not confirmed, it appears he may have suffered a concussion. He may have also suffered an injury to his ribs, but that is not confirmed at this time.
Hardy did sit up before the PPV went off the air but medical staff asked him to lay back down. An ambulance was called to the building and Hardy will be taken to a local hospital to get checked out. As the show ended, Hardy was still down on the floor and the promotion asked the crowd to clear out as soon as the event ended.
The run-ins during the end of the main event were scheduled and not a reaction to the Hardy injury.
