It happens to almost everyone. As talented as some of today’s wrestlers are, there is no way to guarantee their complete safety in or out of the ring. That’s just not how wrestling works and nothing is going to change that. One way or another, someone is going to get hurt at some point and unfortunately that seems to have been the case again this Monday night.
With so many wrestlers on its active rosters, WWE has the ability to run multiple shows at the same time, even on the same night. That’s what they tend to do every Monday night, with a SmackDown live event taking place at the same time as Monday Night Raw. It offers a city something different than just the TV show, but it also doubles the chance of someone getting hurt, which is what took place.
According to Wrestlinginc.com, Kalisto may have been injured during this Monday’s SmackDown live event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The show included a tag match with the Lucha House Party facing the Revival. During the match, Kalisto landed on his shoulder, with the referee throwing up the X sign. Kalisto was quickly pinned, which goes against what has been happening during the current tour. While Kalisto was eventually able to walk off on his own power, he was holding either his ribs or the back of his arm.
Good pal and friend of the podcast, Qwegg from Cali, sent this to us. From a house show, it looks like Kalisto got injured. “Revival hit a quick pin and then the wrong music played, ref threw up the x.” #WWE pic.twitter.com/xesRsgRelf

Kalisto can do a lot when he’s healthy. Check out some of his better moments:
Opinion: I know Kalisto and the Lucha House Party have seemed like little more than jobbers as of late, but they are a perfect house show act to warm up the crowd. They have the energy, the music and the in-ring style to fire up the fans and that is where they truly shine. Kalisto is a big part of that and hopefully whatever happened to him is not too serious, as he is a valuable member of any roster.
What is next for the House Party? Should the team split up? Let us know in the comments below.
