WWE Superstar Rusev may have been injured during last night SmackDown tapings, according to reports.
NoDQ says during the TV recordings for a Main Event match against Neville, the Bulgarian went down half-way through the clash. It was reported that he may have popped his right shoulder out of place.
Rusev was checked by a trainer, but the match was ended and the win was awarded to Neville by medical decision, and the former United States Champion was not happy about this decision.

After the match, Rusev ran after the referee, timekeeper and the trainer, throwing a fit in the process, according to the report.
We will have to wait and see until the WWE releases an update or until the tapings are aired later this week to see what the incident looked like, and whether or not the injury was indeed real or just kayfabe for a possible future storyline.
Rusev needs to be used in a more constructive and creative storyline in the WWE. He has the talent but is just lacking the promo skills at the moment. Hopefully when Lana returns to WWE TV, the two are paired up again, as she is excellent at delivering promos for him.
The company has already recognised the two superstars real life engagement, so this movement of pairing Lana back with Rusev is the best move the WWE can do for both superstars and it is likely to be the case.
