After being chokeslammed through the stage by Kane on Monday’s RAW, the initial storyline report on the injuries suffered by Zack Ryder was that he has a “broken back”, but in an update on WWE.com, Ryder has been diagnosed with a “herniated disc” in his back. WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann stated that Ryder will need physical rehabilitation and will not require surgery.
While Ryder’s injury is part of a storyline, SmackDown Superstar Randy Orton suffered a legitimate herniated disc in his back last month and has just returned from injury, so it is a possibility that the WWE may follow the same guidelines (though many within the WWE think that Orton is coming back too soon).
