The WWE are having a truly terrible time with injuries over the past year or so, and it seems like things are not letting up.
Heading into WrestleMania season, the WWE need all their superstars as fit as possible in order to pack over 100,000 people into AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas for what Vince McMahon and company want to be the biggest WrestleMania of all-time.
They might be a man down, however, as reports from a recent WWE house show seem to indicate that the Big Show may have picked up an injury.
Big Show Hurt
Show potentially suffered a knee injury at tonight's WWE live event in Kalamazoo, Michigan, according to multiple correspondents.
According to a correspondant for WrestleZone, whilst teaming up with Dolph Ziggler - Show landed badly on his knee and after the match had to go to the back while Ziggler celebrated the win.
“Dolph Ziggler and Big Show teamed up against Luke Harper and Braun Strowman w/Rowan at ringside," the correspondant said. "The fans absolutely got into the match, but Big show appeared to have been injured at the end of the bout."
Limping to the Back
The report went on to add that Dolph told Big Show to leave the ring "safely", which Show did, going under the bottom rope, which is something he never does.
"It looks like he tweaked his knee, and he could be seen talking to Dolph after the end of the match as Dolph told him to exit safely. Big Show then returned up the ramp after exiting the ring under the bottom rope instead of his traditional exit. Could Big Show be seriously hurt or was it just a slight discomfort?”
The WWE have had a terrible time of things recently with injuries and adding the Big Show to the injured list would be yet another big blow.
John Cena is almost certainly going to miss WrestleMania after tearing a labrum in his shoulder while working out in the gym.
On its own, that Cena injury is enough to cause a real drop in ticket sales and pay-per-view buys, but when combined with Randy Orton and Cesaro also being out because of shoulder injuries, as well as Seth Rollins suffering a terrible knee injury, it is no wonder the WWE product at the moment is so desperately lacking.
Cena was supposed to be facing The Undertaker at 'Mania this year in what could well have been The Deadman's last ever match in the company. Instead, Shane McMahon had to be drafted in to take on Taker inside Hell in a Cell.
