As we previously reported, Brian Kendrick appeared to have suffered an injury during his match against Hideo Itami on the special Christmas edition of ‘Raw.’

It has now been revealed that Kendrick suffered a broken orbital bone and a broken nose from the GTS Itami used during their match.

WWE confirmed this injury via a video and accompanying tweet on their official Twitter account.

The current estimation for Kendrick being out of action is two months. Now this time-frame is subject to change depending on the rate of recovery.

It should be noted that following the injury Kendrick sustained on ‘Raw,’ Itami used a submission to defeat Gallagher on 205 Live in what was an eerily similar move to the Rings of Saturn submission finisher popularized by former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville.

Itami tweeted out a get well message to Kendrick on Twitter.

If you missed the ending of the match where the injury occurred, we have provided the video down below for you to watch.
