WWE have confirmed Braun Strowman had been rushed to hospital following his fight with Bobby Lashley.

Strowman was taken to a hospital near Dallas after suffering a 'separated pelvis' during the Falls Count Anywhere match on Monday Night RAW.

Both Strowman, 35 and Lashley collided into the titantron and were immediately treated by paramedics at the scene.

The show in Dallas was the first from RAW with Paul Heyman as Executive Director.

After surviving a two-count, Strowman then sent himself and his opponent crashing through the LED wall.

The incident caused a pyro explosion with WWE commentator Corey Graves responding: "Holy s***".

Graves took to Twitter to admit he likely faces a fine from WWE over his comments, posting: "Thinking of starting a GoFundMe page for this fine...."

The audience in Texas looked on in shock before the TV cameras panned to backstage where the referees attended to both wrestlers before calling for medical assistance.

Strowman made his WWE debut in 2015, initially joining as the newest member of The Wyatt Family.

His rivalry with Lashley began last month when he defeated his fellow WWE superstar in an arm wrestling match.

Lashley subsequently attacked Strowman to set up a match at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia, with the latter emerging victorious.

Lashley, 42, is now in his second tenure with WWE after returning in 2018.
