News Scary moment early in Imperium/Undisputed ERA match

The People's Champion

UPDATE: On the post-show Q & A, Triple H confirmed the injury. “Yeah, Alexander Wolfe got caught on the chin early by a combo of Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish and just got knocked out and our medical staff came out there and got him out of there.”
This was scary.

The main event of Worlds Collide was just getting started at Toyota Center in Houston on Sat. night (Jan. 25). Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish of Undisputed ERA executed a tandem chop/kick to Imperium’s Alexander Wolfe, and Wolfe went limp.

Fish covered and appeared to have to pull his opponent’s shoulder up himself to avoid the three count. Referee Drake Wuertz conferred with a visibly concerned Fish, keeping the cameras on them as medical staff checked on Wolfe.

Trainers rolled the German to the floor, action continued, and Nigel McGuinness & Tom Phillips soon informed us the match was now four-on-three.

It was a good example of how a situation like this should be handled (unlike the main event of TLC last month), and credit to Wuertz, the trainers, Triple H, Shawn Michaels & the team in gorilla, and of course the seven men who remained in the match and presumably had to adjust on the fly.

Imperium would go on to win, with WALTER recovering from having been put through an announce table by a Strong Olympic Slam to pin Fish after a powerbomb.

But attention will focus on Wolfe, who also suffered a head injury at the first TakeOver: WarGames in Houston in 2017, and may have just recently had a similar issue during a no disqualification match with Ilja Dragunov on NXT UK.

We’ll keep you posted with any word on his condition.
