There’s your explanation. You never know when you might see someone get injured in wrestling. An injury can go down during any match with no warning and that makes them all the more dangerous. It can be a horrible way for a match to go and some of them can be a lot more devastating than others. That seemed to be the case during a pretty important match this week.
One of the biggest matches on this week’s Monday Night Raw featured Mickie James challenging Asuka for the Raw Women’s Title. The match was presented as perhaps James’ last chance to win the title as her in-ring career is winding down. The match was a focal point of the show and ended in a somewhat controversial fashion. There might be some bad news as to why.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Asuka defeated James when the referee rules that James could not continue while in the Asuka Lock. Mick Foley and Lance Storm have tweeted that he had heard James’ shoulder may have popped out during the match, which caused the referee to stop it. WWE made no reference to an injury in their official recap of the show. If James is injured, it is not clear how much time she could miss.
If true, I’m wishing Mickie a quick and complete recovery…and hoping she gets another shot at the title. https://t.co/gf69VD5ahB

The match was going well until the ending. Check out the good parts:
Opinion: I don’t know what happened last night but if James had hurt her shoulder like that, the match should have been stopped. At the same time, there is a chance that it is a storyline, which would be the best scenario for everyone involved. James is a great performer and a huge asset to the division, but she is not likely to be in the ring that much longer. Hopefully she does not have to spend a lot of that time recovering.
