Dolph Ziggler Suffers Concussion, Latest on the WWE World Champion’s Status reported Wednesday that World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler suffered a concussion at the prior night’s SmackDown! taping.

The concussion is the result of a blow an interfering Ziggler took during a match between Big E Langston and Jack Swagger. WWE medical personnel confirmed the concussion in a post-show examination.

“He [was] having some memory difficulties and a bit of a headache … he definitely has a concussion,” said WWE’s doctor Michael Sampson. “We’re checking him out, and going to be doing neuropsychological testing and just keep it monitored.”

WWE will use the tests to establish a “baseline” and then make an evaluation regarding his ability to quickly get back in the ring.
