WWE's Enzo Amore taken to hospital after suffering injury

WWE wrestler Enzo Amore had to be taken off on a stretcher after suffering an injury during his tag-team match at WWE Payback on Sunday.

The WWE said the injury occurred when Amore's face clipped the bottom rope, causing the back of his head to slam off the mat. Amore's tag-team match came to an unscheduled end, but the event continued, and the WWE continued to provide updates on Amore's status on Twitter.

The WWE said Amore was taken to a local medical facility in Chicago as a precaution, and was diagnosed with a concussion. ESPN's Arash Markazi reported that Amore was discharged from the hospital Sunday night. Amore (whose real name is Eric Arndt) has been with WWE since 2012 after playing college football at Division III Salisbury University in Maryland from 2007 to 2009.
