Payback came to us live from Baltimore, Maryland on Sunday night and being just two weeks shy of Elimination Chamber, WWE would have wanted to avoid any injuries.
Shockingly, the injuries didn't occur in the most physical matches. Rusev and John Cena used weapons, props and electrics during their match and still both walked away seemingly unharmed.
As did every competitor involved in the main event, when just about every superstar went through an announce table, Kane, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Randy Orton all managed to walk away uninjured.
Ryback in bad way
It is in-fact Ryback that looks to be the worst for wear as it seems "The Big Guy" suffered a broken rib in his match against Bray Wyatt. The medics tried to look at Ryback during the match as they suspected it but Ryback wanted to get the match finished.
It looked like it happened when Bray hit his trademark senton from the apron and Ryback rolled onto his side to receive it and it connected badly. After the bump, Ryback was almost counted out as he lay on the floor outside the ring trying to breathe through the pain. Bray went on to get the win off Sister Abigail for his first pay-per-view win in 2015.
Ryback will be evaluated later today and it will then become clear as to whether or not he will be a part of WWE's Monday Night Raw tonight, according to reports.
Ziggler also injured
Ryback wasn't the only superstar who is taking home more than memories after last night;s encounter as Dolph Ziggler required stitches to fix a nasty cut he received at the hands of Sheamus.
The "Showoff" collided heads with the Irish Superstar and blood just started to flow as the two men rushed to create a match finish that saw Sheamus hit a Brogue Kick on Dolph as he knelt on the ground. Referees and medics then rushed to try and contain the bleeding following the bell as Ziggler was helped to the back and subsequently a picture of the stitches he received later in the night was tweeted to the WWE Universe.
Both injuries are treatable and if Ryback has suffered a broken a rib then WWE will be hopeful he will be recovered in time to continue his programme with Ryback at Elimination Chamber in less than two weeks time.
Given that Elimination Chamber and then a pretty sadistic ladder match awaits the WWE superstars in the next month, WWE will feel as injuries go, they have gotten off pretty lightly compared to what is yet to come.
What do you think WWE should do with Ryback and Dolph Ziggler's characters moving forward? Let us know below.
