Street fight: Jay Briscoe d ROH Tag Champ Steve Corino with a suplex onto a guard rail. Mark Briscoe, Jimmy Jacobs, Cedric Alexander, & Caprice Coleman all got involved.
Per a report from Wrestling Observer Corino may be legit hurt. Sinclair told the crew to stop filming and they brought a backboard to get Corino to the back. From half hour after the taping they were still helping Corino out behind the curtain and apparently kept everyone off the floor so pictures were not taken. It would appear he is ok now.
Thank you to everyone that texted & Tweeted. I’m OK. Sore, but won’t miss ANY time.
