On the June 11 episode of WWE SmackDown, Ford took on Chad Gable in singles competition. The bout was interrupted by Otis, who laid out Ford with multiple splashes.

Following the show and Otis' attack, WWE announced Ford had suffered a "partial rib fracture and torn intercostal cartilage." On WWE's The Bump, Bianca Belair said Ford did not suffer a collapsed lung and is recovering from rib injuries.
