According to several live reports sent in from fans who were at this week’s double SmackDown tapings the Mohegan Sun Arena (CT), Umaga apparently suffered a leg injury.
The former IC champion was wrestling WWE Champion Triple H in the main event of Friday’s SmackDown. During the match, the Samoan Bulldozer went down and the referee did the “x” hand signal that means an injury has occured. Umaga did not wrestle on the second show taped later in the night for next week.
At this time, there is no confirmation on how serious the injury is. Umaga recently returned to WWE after being out for several months due to a torn PCL suffered back in August 2008.
