A video of the injury can be watched here (@johnny.igwrestling) on Instagram. It occurred when Ben was coming off the ropes and he was hit with a forearm from Skywalker. Skywalker proceeded to hit three moonsaults onto Ben and when he covered him, the referee did not follow all the way through with the three count.

Shun Skywalker attempted to lift Ben-K up by his head but Ben did not move so Skywalker went up to the top rope for another moonsault and then the referee counted to three.

That was terrifying to watch. How did no one pick up that he was out? Glad to hear Ben-K is alright, but that could have ended so bad with they way they carried on.

Surprised they’re calling it a mild concussion. Looked ugly, and scary.
