The WWE’s Payback pay-per-view event came to a very unsettling halt just minutes after starting on Sunday when Enzo Amore suffered a serious, unscripted injury.

Amore and his tag team partner Cassady, only a month into their stint on the WWE’s main roster, were taking part in the finals of the WWE number one contenders tag team tournament against The Vaudvillains. The injury came as Simon Gotch tried to throw Amore out of the ring. His head hit awkwardly on the rope, snapping it back, and he fell to the ground like a sack of potatoes. There he remained motionless until the referee came over and signalled that something had gone horribly wrong.

Take a look:

After that the match was called off, and the broadcast cut to some pre-taped footage while Amore was stretchered out of the arena:

Fortunately, Amore escaped career-threatening injury and did not even have to spend the night in the hospital:

No word yet on when Enzo will be back in the ring, but it looks like he’s feeling pretty good.
