According to WrestlingInc, O’Reilly was with Cole backstage and he was responsive after the incident. The report also states that they were just selling the closing angle on the show and that the incident was a work.
The angle led to many people on the internet speculating that the incident was because O’Reilly has Type 1 Diabetes. I was told that they didn’t even anticipate that people would think it had to do with that. This was simply a case of WWE running an angle, but speculation ran rampant on social media after photos were leaked.
@KORcombat you're in my thoughts. Stay strong brother! Hopefully this isn't nothing to serious. My thoughts are with you and your family. Wishing Kyle Greenwood aka Kyle O'Reilly a speedy recovery. ✌🤘🤟🙏#WWENXT #WWE #AEW @TripleH #TripleH #prowrestling @steveaustinBSR pic.twitter.com/gHEVQ1T0uF— Jays Nerdy Life (@JaysNerdyLife) February 18, 2021
