Foley and Styles Comment on Ryder’s Bump from RAW, WWE Returning to Japan, Tapings

– WWE has announced they will return to Japan for SmackDown live events in Ryogoku on April 9th and 10th. This will be the first SmackDown tour of Japan in three years.

– Both Joey Styles and Mick Foley expressed concern for Zack Ryder after his stage bump on last night’s RAW Supershow. They wrote:

Styles: “That was one the worst falls I have ever seen and that includes Original ECW. Can someone in San Diego get us an update on @ZackRyder? #Raw”

Foley: “Wow, sincerely hope @ZackRyder is going to be ok. – that looked like a nasty landing. Ankles, knees, spine all looked to be in jeopardy.”

“Yeah, @Joeystyles I’m legit concerned for @zackryder. There’s just way too much risk there. That fall off the ramp might not be something you can get through with fortitude and ice packs. Zack has such a bright future; I hate to see his knees, ankles and spine at such risk. That’s the type of thing that could cost him weeks or months at the most vital time of his career.”

– WWE will tape this week’s WWE NXT, and this week’s SmackDown tonight from the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California. Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton is scheduled for SmackDown, and two dark match main events advertised are Daniel Bryan vs. Big Show for the World Heavyweight Championship and Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett in a Street Fight.

    I think Ryder was yelling WOO! WOO! as he was thrown off of the stage.

    the brunt of the impact would have been absorbed by the wheel chair as it doesnt have a solid seat, and the wheels would have probably absorbed some of the impact as well.
    of course he could still have landed funny, but I dont think the impact is nearly as bad as some people expect it to be.
    If it was a non collapsible wheel chair, it would be a different story though.

    If u watch it again he lands on some sort of padding that the carpet is covering and he rolls off onto the floor

    didnt they do this with kurt angle back in the day when he was like gm or something?

    Off the stage and onto concrete? Why wouldn’t they put a bunch of wires and fake electrical stuff atleast.

    Foley and his repeated use of “fortitude.” I couldn’t help but chuckle.

    although it was dangerous, I do miss the off the stage bumps, they were always classic during the Attitude era….would’ve made more sense thou to have tables there to break his fall or have kane chokeslam him off the stage through a bunch of tables like the good old days

    Ryder fucking flew off that stage, it was a pretty stupid idea.

    This would’ve made for a great Joey Styles OH MY GOD moment
