Reving the engine probably didn't hurt it.  If you drove it without coolant
that could have.  But you just need to put the freeze plug back, fill the
engine with coolant and drive it.  If it drives fine, don't "imagine"
problems, just keep driving it.

The MGB freeze plug is tapped into place then dimpled with something like a
ball pein hammer.  Clean the bore in the block first.  After it has been
installed you could swab the edges with something like JB Weld.  That will
make the plug permanent.
