As per the script, Khali was to go for a flapjack, a regulation move in wrestling parlance, where the opponent is strategically tossed up. But as destiny had it, Ong did not adhere to the plan, rather than pushing Khali back, he held his shirt and fell down, hurting his tailbone as his head hits the ring with tumultuous sound. Ong, who was already suffering from a concussion, severely damaged his spine and skull.
