Bad news for The Hype Bros coming off a significant win during tonight's WWE SmackDown Live, earning themselves number one contender status for the SmackDown tag team titles when Zack Ryder eliminated Konnor of The Ascension.
Unfortunately the official WWE is is reporting that Ryder suffered a knee injury during the match
"We think he injured his kneecap or his patella. We think it popped out and then popped back in, so we're just going to do an MRI to make sure that there is not cartilage damage or some tendon tearing, stuff like that,” according to WWE's Dr. Chris Robinson. “Hopefully there's not and it'll be a shorter rehab period. If there is, there's a different road we might have to go down that may take longer to get him to recover."
It's unclear what this means for The Hype Bros and their shot at the SmackDown Tag Titles going forward.
