    From Jim Ross announced late on tonight's show that Floyd Mayweather suffered an elbow injury. During the meelee earlier in the show, he was thrown over the top rope, caught by several WWE wrestlers, and got up acting like he was in pain. At the time the idea of an injury wasn't played up. Later in the show, in a low key fashion, Ross just said there was an elbow injury. He didn't elaborate on it like one would for a wrestling angle. That doesn't mean it wasn't an angle, as they could be low keying it to make it less obvious. We should have more later tonight.
