Candido received medical attention backstage and was later taken to a local hospital via ambulance. Early indications are that he has a broken ankle, although TNAwrestling has yet to receive official word. We’ll have an update on Candido’s condition on Monday afternoon.
UPDATE ON CANDIDO: On Monday morning, Shane Douglas spoke to Chris Candido, who was still at a local Orlando hospital. Candido is scheduled to undergo surgery on Monday afternoon to insert a steel plate and screws into his ankle, which was completely dislocated. Candido also suffered a total fracture of his tibia and fibula bones. Everyone at TNA Wrestling wishes Candido a quick recovery, and hopefully we’ll have some comments from Chris once he returns home. According to Douglas, doctors told Candido he will be out of action for approximately 6 weeks.”
