This Monday's episode of RAW was one that had a lot of physical implications for numerous stars on the show.

We saw Neville get injured, Triple H get busted open and even a referee required stitches after the show.

Neville injured himself in a singles match with Chris Jericho when he unfortunately fractured his ankle attempting to perform a baseball slide.

The rubber in Neville's footwear got caught on the math resulting in the Man that Gravity Forgot being grounded.

A gruelling video was released shortly after the show which showed Neville receiving the news that he had a fractured ankle and would, unfortunately, have to miss his first WrestleMania.

Fortunately for Neville, he doesn't require surgery and reports today have confirmed that the former NXT Champion will be out for approximately three months.

Neville is now expected to return in late May/ early June - given that his rehab and training goes according to plan.

Interestingly, this would bring him back in time for an event which seems made for him, Money in the Bank.

If the company are planning on giving him a big push on his return, the Money in the Bank ladder match would certainly give them that opportunity.

Neville will be disappointed to miss WrestleMania 32 with him seemingly set for a chance at the Intercontinental Championship at the event in Dallas.

Time away could prove good for Neville though who could possibly even give his character a bit of a make-over during his absence.

Latest on a long list

Neville now joins an injury list that features Seth Rollins, Sting, Cesaro and John Cena as the company continues to have their options limited.

Unlike Rollins and Sting however, Neville should only be out for several months whereas Rollins was initially dubbed for nine months on the sidelines.
