Kalisto injury caused one WWE SummerSlam match to be cancelled

Published Add your comment

In the mass blunderbuss that was the 2016 WWE Draft, SmackDown Live made some very interesting picks.

And when we say interesting, I mean that Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon made some horrible picks - including taking Baron Corbin at 19th overall, ahead of Enzo & Cass, Cesaro and The Club.

One interesting pick saw SmackDown draft Kalisto, despite the fact that it is Monday Night Raw who boast the Cruiserweight Division. Well, that was six weeks ago and Kalisto hasn't really been seen since, and now we know why.

The high-flying luchador was set to take on the aforementioned Baron Corbin at SummerSlam, but the match was pulled last minute.

Everyone assumed that the match didn't take place because of time constraints and that Kalisto - Corbin was dispensable. However, it seems that the former Lucha Dragon is actually injured.

"Kalisto wrestled on the August 2nd SmackDown, losing an Intercontinental Title #1 contenders match to Apollo Crews. Corbin was also in that match," Wrestling Inc wrote earlier today, quoting the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

"No word yet on the injury but Kalisto had to be helped to the back after the match," they added.

We'll have to wait and see how long the flying former PWG star is out of action. And also what SmackDown will do with him when he does eventually return.
