According to reports, an unusual six superstars were ‘knocked out’ or ‘knocked silly’ during WWE programming over the past week.
The past week was a big week in WWE, as not only did they have the build-up and reaction to the Royal Rumble, but also for Worlds Collide as well.
As a result, more superstars than usual were in action over one weekend, and a high number of superstars were reportedly ‘knocked out’.
On to the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, via Wrestling Inc, it was reported six superstars were either ‘knocked out’ or ‘knocked silly’ at Worlds Collide and this past Monday's Raw.
Alexander Wolfe, Marcel Barthel, and Roderick Strong were among the names at Worlds Collide, while on Raw, it was Samoa Joe, Rey Mysterio, and Riddick Moss.

WWE always does its best to avoid injuries in the ring, but the sheer amount of injuries within just a few days, as well as them all being similar, is rather unusual.
Wrestling Observer Radio noted as well that not all superstars who were injured were concussed. It’s unknown how all six exactly happened, or the severity of each injury.
Three superstars were injured in the Imperium vs Undisputed Era match at Worlds Collide. Wolfe took a kick to the face by Bobby Fish and had to be removed from the match. He later tweeted out he was "fine."
On Raw, Joe was removed from his match after going for a dive and then grabbing the back of his head, Mysterio faced MVP, and Moss made his main roster debut alongside Mojo Rawley.
Dave Meltzer said he wasn't sure what happened to cause Moss to get shaken up.
Fingers crossed all six superstars are able to return to action for WWE soon and aren’t kept on the sidelines for too long.News Now - Sport News
