According to TNA sources, Jesse Neal suffered a neck injury and potential concussion during Sunday’s TNA Sacrifice PPV.
The injury occurred during the finish of the Ink, Inc. vs. Mexican America match when Hernandez executed a dominator-like finisher on Neal. Neal was at this week’s Impact TV tapings, but he wasn’t booked for any matches as a precaution following the neck trauma.
According to one source, Neal “looked loopy” and couldn’t turn his head to the side. Neal tried acting tough, telling colleagues he wasn’t sure if he had a concussion, but an MRI showed he had a bulged disk after being spiked into the mat Sunday night.
Hernandez has developed a backstage reputation for being unsafe to work with. In February, Hernandez dropped Doug Williams on his head/neck executing a Border Toss during a TV match. Williams avoided serious injury, but it was enough of a scare where the match was halted.
