It can happen to anyone. There are all kinds of injuries in the wrestling world and some of them can be a lot more intense than others. One of the biggest problems with dealing with injuries is that they could take place at any time. That means a simple fluke accident could take someone out, and unfortunately that was the case again this weekend as a WWE star got banged up pretty badly.
The WWE Day One Kickoff Show featured a tag team match between Sheamus/Ridge Holland vs. Cesaro/Ricochet. Early in the match, Ricochet attempted a 450 splash but his boot accidentally smashed Holland in the face. Holland suffered a broken nose and left the match without returning. There is no word on how long Holland will be out or what kind of treatment he may need. Sheamus went on to win the match for his team.

It was a nasty moment. Check out how the match went, plus what a healthy Holland can do:
Opinion: Unfortunately this is the kind of thing that can happen to anyone at any time and in this case, it happened to Holland. To make it even worse, Holland did nothing wrong as he was laying on the mat as he was supposed to do. Hopefully he is back in the ring sooner rather than later as that is the kind of injury that can keep someone on the shelf for a rather long time.
What do you think of Holland? What should he do when he gets back in the ring? Let us know in the comments below.
