Bray Wyatt Was Injured At A WWE Live Event Last Night & The World Is A Cruel, Terrible Place
WWE confirmed that Bray Wyatt suffered a right calf injury in the match with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns tonight in Italy. As noted, the injury came when Wyatt was backing out of the corner after the referee’s 4 count. He slipped on the mat, landed bad and was unable to continue. A correspondent in attendance called it a freak accident.

God damn it. If you’ve watched the last two Raw’s, hopefully you’ve noticed a shift in character for THE most underutilized guy on the roster, Bray Wyatt. On the Raw after WrestleMania, Wyatt and his Family attacked the League of Nations, a heel faction. On this past Monday’s Raw, Wyatt tagged with the sweet handsome prince Roman Reigns in the main event, and even secured the winning pin fall. The crowd loved him both times, and it finally seemed WWE got the memo that Wyatt was too charismatic and unique to be a heel, so they let him do his thing and let the crowd be enamored with him. But since we can’t have nice things, Wyatt got hurt at a stupid live event last night, and it was one of those non contact injuries that haunt my dreams. Whenever something is described as a ‘freak accident’, it’s never a good thing, but I really hope Wyatt isn’t seriously hurt. It seems like they’re positioning him to chase the title after the Styles/Reigns feud, so maybe giving him a few weeks off to have him fresh for Extreme Rules wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. If he is seriously hurt, I’m going to light myself on fire.
