One of the major talking points coming out of Sunday night's Payback pay-per-view is the health and well-being of Enzo Amore. The 29-year-old wrestler was left motionless on the floor of the arena following a botched move during his and Colin Cassady's Tag Team Championship match vs The Vaudevillains.
After colliding with the second rope and falling out of the ring, Amore suffered a head injury and was stretchered out of the arena amidst huge concern from the entire WWE Universe. While the tag team match was abandoned, the event itself continued with only a brief update stating Amore could move his arms and legs.
Now, though, the WWE have offered a more comprehensive, and positive, update that will surely be met with a collective sigh of relief from everyone in the wrestling world.

The WWE themselves have confirmed that Amore escaped serious injury. In an article on their official website, they wrote:
"Amore was then rushed to a local medical facility, where he underwent testing and was diagnosed with a concussion before being discharged."
They also uploaded a photo of Amore outside of the hospital looking in far better health than when the WWE Universe had last seen him exiting the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.
Obviously, the news is a great relief for all involved although it does likely mean a few weeks away from the squared circle for Amore and his tag partner Big Cass.
Considering the WWE's recent history with concussions - Daniel Bryan was recently forced to retire after persistent head injuries - the organisation will likely keep Amore out of action until he is 100-percent ready to return.
