WWE issued a breaking news alert on Wednesday afternoon announcing that World Heavyweight Champion Dolph Ziggler suffered a concussion at Tuesday night’s SmackDown taping from Raleigh, North Carolina.

According to WWE, the concussion took place during a match between Big E Langston and Jack Swagger.

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

The neuropsychological tests will provide WWE medical officials with a “baseline” from which to monitor Ziggler's progress in the coming weeks.
