Brian Cage got injured at Impact Wrestling PPV even called Rebellion. Even though he got injured during the match, he was able to beat Johnny Impact and his Impact World title away from him. Cage had to be taken to a hospital for emergency treatment after the match because the injury was pretty bad.
Cage was at the Busted Open Radio to talk about the injury and what he felt during that time. "Right when we hit, I'm rolling and the pain shoots down through my leg," Cage said. "It's a feeling I've never had before in my life.
I'm instantly thinking, 'ruptured disc or whatever. My back is f---ed, I'm going to have to have surgery or something.' Then I'm thinking, 'Maybe it'll go away,' and just trying to enter the ring after that moment, I'm bleeding and what not.
"Rolling into the ring, turning my hip over hip and trying to get up, I felt like there was no strength there and the pain shot down my leg again, and I'm like 'crap.' But it felt almost a little bit better, so maybe it will subside here in a second, like a flash thing.
Then I think was in the corner and I evaded Johnny, and there was no movement, like, I couldn't. I felt so slow and robotic in my mannerisms and movement because of the pain."
