Bray Wyatt who was about to receive a huge push post-Wrestlemania season got stuck after an injury and was out of action for the rest of the European tour. He was not seen on the Raw and Smackdown episodes this past week which was taped from London, England. Wyatt is out of action due to picking up a calf injury while facing off against WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns in a match that was held in a live event in Milan, Italy.
WWE has admitted the injury of the eater of the world, but so far kept Bray Wyatt’s status under wraps. According to the rumor mill and reports from wrestlingINC.com, during the franchise’s European tour, Bray Wyatt didn’t rupture his calf but pulled a muscle instead. The minor injury would sideline him for four to six weeks as per Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports. That means he will not be seen in action in the upcoming WWE Payback pay-per-view despite featuring in the main promo for the pay-per-view.
The good news is, though, the injury is not as major as it was thought, previously and he will be back for the next pay-per-view i.e. WWE Extreme Rules on May 22nd. Wyatt and his stable were scheduled for a match with the League of Nations at WWE Payback.
Though, the injury might be a blessing in the curse for Wyatt. Despite his debut and strong ongoing since after 2013, he has not been given with a single championship, which is a shame and points out the fact that WWE is indeed in the lack of trophies. With his family member Luke Harper also being sidelined due to injury, it is the time to get revamped and stand tall from the rest of his flock. Bray Wyatt has all the tools to emerge as a singles competitor in his own right. WWE Creative should plan something solid with the future of Wyatt.
