Kurt said, “I wasn’t supposed to get knocked out for real. It was supposed to be at work and unfortunately, the table gave way early and Triple H had my arms behind my back with his pedigree finish and he didn’t have time to let my arms go so I could protect myself. So, the table gave way early, and I got knocked out for real.”
