As reported on the Fightful Wrestling post-show Podcast, Bryan was adamant in saying that he was okay as he went through the curtain, although many backstage feared the worst. Mustafa Ali was said to be very apologetic, even beyond what you heard in the ring. Bryan and the referee of the match were then taken back to the trainer's room to evaluate the incident.

There was a "mad dash" to move on right after the show as WWE had to film another episode of Smackdown Live. Roughly 30 minutes after taking a knee to the neck and ribs, Bryan interrupted an R-Truth and Carmella segment.
