Scratch one title match off of the Battleground card. Ryback has revealed that he will not be defending the Intercontinental Championship at the pay per view because he has been hospitalized. He discovered a staff infection on his knee on Tuesday morning and will be kept under supervision for several days. A replacement match has not been announced by WWE yet.

Health is now very much an issue for Jerry Lawler in his old age. The legendary performer has been hospitalized this week for diverticulitis, the same life threatening condition that caused Brock Lesnar to retire prematurely from UFC and return to WWE. As many of you already know, Lawler was also hospitalized not too long ago when he suffered a heart attack on Monday Night Raw. No word yet on whether or not he will be missing time from work.
