The top-four injuries costing the WWE right now

Published 1 Comments

'World Wrestling Entertaining isn't real'. 'You know it's fake, right?'. These are the common responses when you tell people you like watching WWE.

Well in some aspect that is true. This profession is scripted and all the endings are planned, barring any incidents that could possibly affect the outcome.

However, the impact and the injuries are 100% real and 100% legit, something that WWE know all too well recently.

WWE writers must have such a massive headache from the last few months with several stars going down injuries and shows having to be re-written and re-planned.

Now the injury list isn't quite as long as Arsenal Football Club's, but it's still doing damage to the product.

Who do WWE miss the most, though? Well here are four injuries that are holding them back.

Randy Orton

The Viper hasn't been seen on TV for several months now and that's down to him wanting some time off, but also because he's suffering from a shoulder injury.

WWE confirmed in a statement that Orton suffered a dislocated shoulder and would likely be out of action for around four-to-six months. This was released four months ago, so maybe, just maybe Orton's return will be around the corner.

'The Legend Killer' isn't exactly as vital as he used to be, but nevertheless, his veteran experience and his character is still much-loved within the WWE universe; him being absent for so long is a real blow to the company.

It will be interesting to see how they bring him back to TV, whether it be as a heel or face.

Nikki Bella

When Nikke Bella arrived on the WWE scene, it was mainly because she had a twin, Brie Bella, and the company thought it would be cool to have them on the roster.

In the ring, she wasn't that good, but in recent months you can tell she's been working to improve that side of things and she actually became a good in-ring competitor during her reign as Divas champion.

She lost the title to Charlotte at the back end of last year and has been nursing a neck injury ever since.

Rumours have begun to circulate that she may have to retire or only wrestle part-time due to the severity of her injury. It appears her sister, Brie is set to follow in her husband's footsteps (Daniel Bryan) and call it quits after WrestleMania, so the Bella's could depart the company - period. 

However, her experience is a certainly missed from the Divas division.

John Cena

Speaking of Nikki Bella, her boyfriend needs to return to TV soon as well.

Yes, it's John Cena.

The 15-time World Champion went down with a shoulder injury in November the experienced superstar underwent surgery to correct the issue.

With previous injuries, Cena has managed to recover in record-breaking time, but it's a bit different this time around. He's not returned as quickly as he previously would have.

He's already confirmed he's missing WrestleMania, which is a huge blow to the company considering he is Mr WWE these days, and his actual return date is still unsure.

Love him or hate him, Cena is money and WWE won't say no to that.

Seth Rollins

The one that the WWE misses the most, in my opinion.

Seth Rollins was killing it as a heel and as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, but sadly he had to vacant the belt due to a serious knee injury suffered at a live event in Dublin.

The injury took place during a house-show and after flipping from the turnbuckle, he jarred his knee, leaving him sidelined for up to 12-months.

Rollins as a heel was superb. He had his two little sidekicks in Joey Mercury and Jamie Noble, and overall he was just brilliant TV.

His injury came at an awful time for him and WWE will be better off once he returns. He's a bona fine main event player now and as great as he was in a heel role, the fans adulation for him will almost certainly greet him as a face.
