It feels like, in the modern WWE, not a week goes by without a Superstar or Diva succumbing to an injury in some way, shape or form.
In 2015 alone the likes of Sami Zayn, John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Goldust, Erick Rowan, Tyson Kidd and Jey Uso have all been forced out of the action for varying length of times.
And now WWE legend Ric Flair has revealed that another top Superstar, Bray Wyatt, is dealing with his own injury issue. However, it looks like the WWE have taken a different stance with the Wyatt Family leader compared to the aforementioned stars.

Flair, speaking this week on the most recent episode of his WOOOOO! Nation podcast, claimed that Wyatt has been dealing with a shoulder injury that has affected his involvement.
Although the WWE is yet to confirm such speculation, a restrictive injury such as a shoulder concern would certainly explain why Bray Wyatt has seen so little in-ring action in recent weeks.
Feeling the effects
Indeed, over the past few weeks the Superstar heel has been kept out of matches - instead taking his place on the sidelines as he watched the rest of his Family go to work.
It is unclear where Wyatt may have picked up the injury - if Flair is to be believed, of course - however, with Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper having been involved in a high-octane match against Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose at SummerSlam it could well be that the former may be feeling the effects.
Considering the current climate, every time a wrestler is found to be dealing with an injury the WWE usually fears the worst. Hopefully that isn't the case for Wyatt though, with NoDq noting that he worked the most recent SmackDown taping.
