Matt Hardy Rushed To Hospital After Smashing Head On Concrete Floor In Sickening Spot
WWE legend Matt Hardy was rushed to hospital on Saturday night after smashing his head on concrete in a terrifying spot.
Hardy is currently signed to All Elite Wrestling and faced Sammy Guevara in a 'Broken Rules' match at All Out.
The pair fought at the top of a scissor lift before Guevara speared Hardy off the top.
However, the spear was overshot and both men missed two tables to hit the floor with terrifying impact.

Guevara looked unharmed by the spot while Hardy remained motionless immediately after the stunt.
Referee Aubrey Edwards stopped the match after medical checks - but it resumed moments later.
AEW medical official Doc Sampson checked the 45-year-old and deemed him fit enough to continue.
Hardy quickly picked up the win following the restart but his wife, Reby, fumed on Twitter following the contest.
She shared a screenshot of messages she had sent her husband during the match.
Reby begun: "What the f*** you practically cleared that table."

She added: "What the f***," while a third message read: "MATT THE GODDAMN F***ING F***!"
The screenshot, which is now private, was captioned: "Let me be absolutely fu**ing clear. There is NOTHING entertaining about a concussion. Shame on everyone in that goddamn building."
'Multifarious' was taken to hospital following the match and he is going to be "okay" according to AEW president Tony Khan.
Khan took part in a media scrum following the pay-per-view and discussed Hardy being allowed to continue.
"I just want to give a note here at the beginning and say that the health and safety of the wrestlers is always the most important thing at AEW," Khan begun per Wrestling Inc.
"I just wanted to give everyone an update on Matt Hardy and say, most importantly, Matt is okay and he's going to be okay. What had happened was Matt had taken a fall in the match and I stopped the match, paused the match, and sent the doctor to check on him.
"I was concerned that Matt could be hurt.
"I rang the bell to pause the match. When the doctor checked him, he passed him and cleared him on the concussion protocol. He checked with Matt and then Matt came back after and passed the concussion protocol and he's doing okay.
"I spoke with him after the match and talked to him again just now. He went, as a precaution, to the hospital to get some tests and check out that he's okay, but looks like he is okay and that's why the doctor cleared him to continue.
"It was not something that any of us enjoyed. It was a scary moment, but the most important thing is that Matt is okay. We're all really glad about that."
