In an interview, Kennedy explained what happened after he dropped the briefcase to Edge.

“The next day I went down to see Dr. James Andrews and he said that’s not a tear, you didn’t tear your triceps. Sure enough, it was just a large hematoma. It was a bruise. It was like some blood vessels popped in my triceps and just opened up. I was out for maybe a month.”
