Zack Ryder Injured During Smackdown Battle Royal

While Ryder may have managed to win a #1 Contender battle royal for his tag team on Smackdown Live, giving The Hype Bros a shot at the Smackdown Tag Team Titles held by The Wyatt family, it looks like the team may not get that match for a while, if at all. At some point during the match (possibly during the final elimination), WWE has confirmed that Ryder injured his knee, either the kneecap or patella. Ryder is scheduled for an MRI to determine the extent of the damage, but it looks like he could be on the shelf for a significant amount of time, a big blow for a team that was finally getting decent exposure on Smackdown.
