Watch: Fan video captures moment Bray Wyatt suffers painful injury

Published 2 Comments

Fresh off the back of a WrestleMania most notable because of the number of wrestlers ruled out through injury, the WWE appear to have suffered another blow today.

That's after the organization confirmed that Bray Wyatt has become the latest Superstar to fall victim to injury after an incident during a match on the WWE's current European Tour.


In comments on their official website, the WWE were giving little away, describing the issue simply as a "right calf injury". Now, though, fans can see for themselves how it unfolded after video footage of the incident has emerged.

Wyatt was involved in a main event match against Roman Reigns in Milan, Italy when things took a turn for the worse:

As you can see, the moment 'The New Face of Fear' was hurt seemed to be fairly innocuous as, grappling with Reigns and pushing him into the corner, Wyatt suddenly let go of his opponent to grab his lower right leg.

You can see by the confusion on the faces of both Reigns and the WWE referee that it wasn't part of the plan for the main event match, and it takes some time before officials called off the fight to allow for further treatment.

More worrying, though, is the obvious pain Wyatt is in as he attempts to walk off the injury. At several points, the heel stumbles to the canvas due to the pain he is in.

In another video, you can see Wyatt in discussion with WWE staff before Reigns addresses the Italian crowd to wish his opponent a speedy recovery. The Big Dog's word come at around the nine-minute mark:

Hopefully, having seen the footage, WWE fans don't look to blame Reigns just because he was in the ring at the time the injury occurred. As the video shows, he was in no way involved.

At this stage, with only the above videos and WWE's brief recognition of the injury, it is unclear how serious Wyatt's issue is.

One positive is that, unlike other footage of injuries to the likes of Seth Rollins, there is no obvious moment where you can see serious damage being inflicted.

Injury nightmare

Nevertheless, considering the WWE's recent history with injuries, everyone involved will be crossing their fingers and hoping Wyatt is given the all-clear to return to action sooner rather than later.

With the likes of Rollins, Cena and Randy Orton all still on the sidelines, the organization needs all hands on deck as they look to put together a solid summer of action.
