The WWE have had a terrible time of things with injuries lately, as so many stars will be out of action for WrestleMania 32 at the start of April.
John Cena won't be able to recover in time from shoulder surgery to appear, with Cesaro and Randy Orton being in the exact same situation, rehabbing shoulder/arm problems of their own. Seth Rollins tore his ACL towards the end of last year and is still months away from a return while Neville suffered a fractured ankle last week in a match against Chris Jericho.
And now there is a fresh injury to worry about as Luke Harper was apparently hurt during the dark match that preceded Monday Night Raw yesterday.

After Monday’s episode of RAW in Philadelphia went off the air, The Wyatt Family took on Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler and Sami Zayn in a match to send the fans home happy.
However, it was bad news for Harper who looks like he suffered what could well be a pretty serious knee injury.
After taking a tag from Erick Rowan, Harper appeared to unload a quick flurry of punches on Roman Reigns before falling to the ring. Bray Wyatt quickly tagged in to take Harper's spot as the impressive big man rolled out of the ring and onto the floor, where he was seen grabbing his knee and rolling in pain.
You can check out a video of the incident here. It's filmed from rather high up in the stands but you can see Harper on the floor.
Harper was attended to by a WWE trainer at ringside before being helped to the back by Brawn Strowman and Wyatt, unable to walk under his own power.
Some fans caught pictures of Harper after getting hurt.
Speculation has been bandied about that Harper may have blown out his knee, which means a possible ACL injury could be on the cards. That would mean 6-9 months out on the sidelines which would be brutal.
Luke Harper is undeniably the best wrestler of anyone in the Wyatt Family and a section of fans had been hoping for him to go his own way sometime soon and really become a star in his own right. That won't be happening anytime soon.
