A scary scene broke out during last night's Monday Night Raw when a match between Sheamus and Humberto Carrillo had to suddenly end over what looked like a serious injury. With Sheamus perched on the apron, Carrillo dove over the ropes and attempted to hit the United States Championship with a Sunset Flip Powerbomb, only for Sheamus to land on Carrillo's leg instead of the mat outside the ring. Carrillo immediately signaled to Sheamus and the referee that something was wrong, prompting the ref to end the match and declare Sheamus the winner.
Both PWInsider and the Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer have since reported that Carrillo is "OK" following the match.
Oof, yikes and holy s—, and they replayed this Sunset Flip Powerbomb by Humberto Carrillo on Sheamus multiple times... brought to you by Army of the Dead pic.twitter.com/tDLNQRrBu5— SkullsMedia.com by GIFSkull (@SkullsMedia) May 11, 2021
"Humberto Carrillo is okay," Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio. "If he needed to wrestle tomorrow he could. They may do an injury angle out of it, they may not. He's fine, but that was not the planned finish."
Carrillo had been relegated to Main Event ever since October but looked to be finally getting another chance on Raw in recent weeks. After winning the United States Championship at WrestleMania 37, Sheamus decided to revive the United States Championship Open Challenge. He then put his own spin on it by not putting the title on the line and attacking his opponents before the bell, starting with Carrillo.
