It didn't look like much but JVR was on the bench later holding his jaw on the same side that the contact was made (or at least in question) and it was a little red. Honestly it looks like it just grazed him but at high speeds and if he had his mouth piece out chewing on it like he often does (like p. kane) it could cause a concussion. now i don't want to say thats what it was cause obviously i don't/can't know for sure. i'm not a doctor but there is plenty of literature on concussions linked to contact with the jaw.
