So, is Donovan Dijak a sith, a death eater, or just a big fan of the Miz? pic.twitter.com/brnvqxjDRR

Tommy Dreamer took to Twitter to say that he spent the night in the ER with Bully Ray, and that he got his bell rung during the table spot.

Bully Ray thanked everyone for the well wishes, but it sounds like he’s going to need a little more rest and relaxation before he’s back to one hundred percent.
Thanks for the well wishes. Much appreciated. Was a long night and a rough day so far. Wish I could say I was doing better.
