As announced in a video on WWE’s YouTube channel, Kendrick suffered multiple injuries, including a broken orbital bone, when taking the GTS from Itami. There is no word on how long Kendrick will be out of action. Of course there is the chance that this is a storyline injury to sell the new move but it’s not clear at the moment.
Here’s the announcement.
Opinion: While this may just be a way to push the idea of the GTS being a devastating finisher, it may also be the best possible way to push the move as a game changer. Itami needs some more aura to him and suggesting that the move is so devastating might be the best thing that could happen to him.
What do you think of Kendrick’s injury? Could this be a positive for Itami? Let us know in the comments below.
