WATCH: Hugh Jackman punch pro wrestler Dolph Ziggler, no injury, no MRI

Check out the video below in which Hugh Jackman, promoting “Real Steel” on WWE punch a pro wrestling who tweeted that he suffered a fracture and needed an MRI.

A bogus story but perfectly executed to fool the media.

From TMZ:

Some big media outlets got snookered today by reporting that Dolph Ziggler — the WWE wrestler Hugh Jackman “punched” on Monday Night Raw — sustained a hairline fracture.

Ziggler tweeted he suffered the injury and got an MRI to confirm the fracture.

But sources close to the wrestler and others in the know tell TMZ … the whole thing was made up by Ziggler. There is no MRI and no fracture, although we are told Hugh really did pack a punch and Ziggler was in pain.

We’re told the WWE wasn’t in on the scam.
