Ridge Holland suffered a broken nose during tonight’s WWE Day 1 Kickoff pre-show.
The Day 1 Kickoff saw Holland and Sheamus take on Cesaro and Ricochet. Early on in the match, Cesaro got the upperhand on Holland and tagged in Ricochet for a quick double team. Cesaro helped Ricochet flip onto Holland for a pin attempt, but Ricochet’s boot landed flat on Holland’s face, and that busted his nose open.
Holland immediately rolled to the floor and was checked on by a WWE medic as Sheamus came in and continued the match. After a few minutes at ringside, the medic accompanied Holland to the backstage area for further evaluation. Michael Cole then announced on commentary that Holland would not be returning as he was being treated for a broken nose.
Sheamus went on to win the match, taking Ricochet out at ringside with White Noise on the floor, and then pinning Cesaro after a Brogue Kick.
Stay tuned for more on Holland’s injury and status. Below are several shots from tonight’s Kickoff match at WWE Day 1, including GIFs of the injury:
