Vince McMahon will be aware more than anyone of the effect of several injuries..

WWE must introduce a break for their wrestlers

Published 7 Comments

Although it is not always considered a genuine sport, WWE superstars undoubtedly work a yearly schedule which sees them work just as hard as any professional sports person.

This routine does not solely consist of a vigorous training programme, but also hours of travelling, with the WWE wrestlers rarely getting any time off throughout the year.

Whilst it is clear every wrestler on the roster will be fully aware of the commitment which is needed to be a part of the company, the time and effort is sure to take its toll eventually on their bodies.

Though for the most part, every hard working professional wrestler on WWE's books is in the best physical condition they can be it does not mean they will be exempt from injury.

Injury list 

Vince McMahon and his staff will be more aware of this lately than ever, as the company has had to deal with some of its biggest names being sidelined.

These setbacks have meant the likes of Randy Orton, John Cena and Seth Rollins are just a few names who have been absent from the ring for some time.

There is no denying that any injury to any WWE superstar hits the company hard, whether it be one which has taken place in the ring or not.

Ultimately, WWE has had to deal with the exclusion of people who would usually carry certain story lines and often save episodes of Monday Night Raw or SmackDown; at least from a fan's perspective.

While these occurrences may well be hard on the company, the effect does not compare to what it does to the injured individual, who consequently faces months of rehabilitation before they are able to get back to doing their job.

Time off 

It is with this in mind WWE should contemplate incorporating a break in its annual schedule for everyone who works at the company.

If so many serious injuries to so many important superstars is not a clear enough indication that this is what is desperately needed for both the company and its talent, WWE must rethink the treatment of its wrestlers.

As WWE.com has reported, Bray Wyatt was the latest to be added to the company's lengthy injury list, as he suffered a calf injury during a match with Roman Reigns last night in Milan, Italy.

The 28-year-old is yet another leading name WWE could do without losing, as he is the central figure in the The Wyatt Family stable and as a result will be a huge loss to the company.

Realistically, bringing in a set amount of time during which WWE take a break is likely to mean fewer injuries and an even more impressive product when the business returns.

Time away would not only provide more rest time for WWE superstars, but would also enable the WWE creative team more time to develop intriguing and worthwhile story lines as opposed to ones which are produced just to have material for weekly programming.

Any form of break, even a short one, would surely be welcomed by authoritative figures Triple H and Stephanie McMahon also as it would give them more of a chance to be with their three children.

WWE is a huge company which makes an incredible amount of money and has done so for many years and it is because of this a brief break each year would do little in being detrimental to the business overall.
