In an update on the story we broke first exclusively here on WrestleZone.com last night, we can now confirm the injury to Edge at the WWE house show. He injured it about five minutes into the match and at this point the injury is believed to be a torn Achilles tendon.
As we noted in our initial report, Edge did get on the microphone and apologize to the fans for having to cut the match short. The spot the injury occured wasn’t even really a spot. Edge just planted his foot wrong and went down with his leg at a bad angle.
That is actually quite a serious injury and will likely require surgery and a long period of down time for Edge. According to one source, the plan is to try and get the Unified tag-team titles, which Edge currently holds with Chris Jericho, onto the team of Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase – Legacy.
Right now company officials are scanning footage of the Edge vs. Great Khali match taped on Wednesday night for next week’s SmackDown! TV show trying to find a spot where they can claim on TV for storylines that Edge was injured. [partial credit: f4wonline.com]
