But how did this happen?
According to a report from PWInsider, the reason for Nakamura’s absence was because he was bitten by a dog at yesterday’s Smackdown Live Event in Bakersfield, California.
A law enforcement canine was being brought around different parts of the building, as a part of a pre-show security check. When the dog was brought past Nakamura, it sniffed him and then proceeded to bite him on the leg for some reason.
It is unknown at this time if he will miss any in-ring action due to this incident. We will continue to monitor this story and provide any updates as they become available to us.
Dang, that sucks. I hope that Nakamura doesn’t have too serious of an injury; that could get really messy. Also, there was probably nothing he could do, as his low blow tactic might not have been effective in this situation.
