WWE Superstars are not only expected to wrestle on Raw, Smackdown and pay-per-views, but they are also a part of many live events each week as well.

It seems that these events could be causing WWE the most problems. 

Live issues

Sheamus, Emma and Charlotte were the names on the injured list following Friday's WWE live event in Minneapolis, Minnesota and NXT's house show in the same city.

Sheamus was apparently busted open during his match with Kalisto before Charlotte was given the same treatment against Becky Lynch and Emma was then knocked out in her match against Asuka. 

SHOULD SUPERSTARS GO ALL OUT AT LIVE EVENTS?

Both Emma and Charlotte have updated fans to say that they are absolutely fine despite other fears, but Sheamus' well-being is still currently unknown.

Should these Superstars be putting everything on the line in matches that are not televised when WWE has so much invested in them?

Seth Rollins was WWE World Heavyweight Champion when he landed wrong off a sunset flip at a WWE house show back in October 2015 and he has since been on the treatment table after he suffered a torn MCL, ACL and medical meniscus. 

Rollins' injury is rare but it should have been an example to WWE to tell their Superstars to work lighter matches at live events because if they are injured then it means that their upcoming advertised shows could be at risk. 

HECTIC SCHEDULE?

The unveiling of the WWE Network in 2014 was one of the best and worst decisions WWE ever made. It is fantastic for fans but now with all the new Network Exclusive shows, it means that WWE Superstars' schedules are more hectic than ever.

It also means that many stars are being forced to wrestle with injuries for weeks on end because they are needed for major story lines, much like Nikki Bella before she dropped the Divas Championship. 

WWE needs to stop putting their Superstars at risk and not allow them to be a part of dangerous matches at live shows.

If WWE does bring back their brand split then at least this will allow WWE to be able to rotate their roster, it may even ease off some pressure on some of the bigger stars if there is an entire other roster to perform instead. 

IS WWE'S CURRENT INJURY CRISIS BECAUSE OF THEIR HECTIC SCHEDULE? IS A BRAND SPLIT THE ANSWER? HAVE YOUR SAY IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW...
