WWE: Sheamus seemingly missing events because of injury

Published 10 Comments

The WWE have had a terrible record with injuries in the past year or so.

Rey Mysterio left the company because his body couldn't take the toll of the heavy schedule any more, while John Cena has been off television for the past two weeks after having his nose broken by a big knee to the face from Seth Rollins.

Then there is the case of Tyson Kidd, who was nearly killed after being dropped on his neck by Samoa Joe on a Superstars taping that never made the air, while NXT has been gutted by long-term injuries to Sami Zayn and Hideo Itami.

Sheamus Injured

And it seems that the injury nightmare is continuing with reports emanating that Sheamus has been forced to miss the last few WWE live events because of injury.

"As noted, Sheamus has been absent from the current WWE tour in Australia. Sheamus explained why he missed the tour on his Twitter indicating that he's injured," Raj Giri of Wrestling Inc reported earlier today.

This is worrying for the WWE, with SummerSlam just around the corner. The Celtic Warrior is in the middle of a program with Randy Orton and the two were scheduled to meet at the biggest event of the Summer.

In Sheamus' place, fellow Brit Bad News Barrett has been taking his place and going up against The Viper in his place.

British Faction?

Going off on a tangent, i'm quite surprised that the WWE haven't tried to make a tag-team duo out of Barrett and Sheamus yet, or just a faction of the British wrestlers. "The British Brawlers" - as i have dubbed them in my head - could do good stuff in the singles game if given a chance to team up as heels.

Who knows, maybe they could even pull Neville in to the dark side, with Paige taking care of the Divas.

It's something new that could be fun. What do you guys think about a potential British faction in the WWE? Tell us below...
