Friday night was not a pleasant one for SmackDown
’s resident royalty, King Booker
. First, his majesty suffered a disappointing loss to Matt Hardy
in one-on-one action, and later, his attempted ambush on Undertaker
was thwarted in a big way when he was driven head first onto the announce table via a thunderous Tombstone Piledriver. As a result of the beating he received from The Deadman, King Booker suffered multiple injuries. WWE.com received the following update from World Wrestling Entertainment physician Dr. Rios on King Booker's condition:
“As a result of the Tombstone from Undertaker on Friday night, King Booker suffered a sprain, and strained contusion of the neck,” said Dr. Rios.
WWE.com has also learned that while recovering from his encounter with The Phenom, King Booker will be treated for a previous chronic knee injury, where he has a meniscus tear, and a chronic elbow strain and sprain.
There is no timetable for the King’s recovery, but stay tuned to WWE.com for more information as it becomes available.
