Raw's WWE Clash of Champions proved to be a brutal affair for their first post brand-split pay-per-view as a couple of the company's top stars put their bodies on the line.

First of all, Cesaro could have easily suffered a broken neck during his bout with Sheamus as the Swiss Superman botched a suicide dive to the outside and landed horribly.

It's not clear whether the King of Swing underestimated his trajectory, whether Sheamus was standing too close or if the Irishman failed to catch him the way he was meant to.

Either way, Cesaro can count himself a very lucky boy.

It would appear that Seth Rollins can't say the same thing.

The Architect of the Shield was reportedly injured during the WWE Universal Title Match against Kevin Owens, apparently during the top rope Gutbuster spot.

Rollins was said to be "definitely" hurt when returning backstage last night and was attended to by WWE doctors. One report said Rollins was having trouble breathing backstage, which could indicate a rib injury.

The former two-time WWE world champion was visibly in pain after the bell and in a video that has surfaced after the PPV went off the air, he was given a standing ovation by the Indiana crowd whilst clutching his ribs.

Of course, it's hard to tell whether a pro like Rollins is either just selling from the match or is carrying a genuine injury, but the way he gingerly exited the ring suggested he was not in great shape at all.

After only returning after eight months out with a knee injury a few months ago, Rollins won't want any more time on the shelf than necessary.
