The WWE have had a shocking time of things with injuries in the past few months and year.
You just have to look at the WrestleMania 32 card to see all the stars that had to miss it through injury, with Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Cesaro, the now-retired Daniel Bryan and John Cena all missing out - yes, Cena did appear but he didn't wrestle.
Just like Rollins and Daniel Bryan did in years previous, Bray Wyatt got injured on one of the first nights of the WWE's annual post-WrestleMania European tour. And now we have an update on Bray's condition.

Better than Feared
The WWE were fearing the worst, but thankfully, it seems that Wyatt may have gotten lucky.
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, via Wrestling Inc, Bray injured his calf in the match against WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns in Italy last week.
Apparently, there were initial fears that Wyatt had suffered torn calf, but now it seems that he has suffered just a pulled muscle, which has a lot quicker recovery time.
So, instead of being out for a matter of months and potentially missing several pay-per-views, Bray will only be out for four to six weeks.
"This indicates that the severity of the injury isn't as bad as originally thought, and Wyatt could be back in time for the May 22nd WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view," the report went on to state.
Still a Blow
Despite the injury being better than first feared, this is still a huge blow for Bray Wyatt and the rest of the Wyatt Family.
Before the injury, it looked like they were setting up Bray to have an incredibly interesting storyline with Roman Reigns, with the two of them becoming some sort of tweener group, defeating the League of Nations in a tag team match on the last RAW before Wyatt's injury.
Now, with Wyatt out, that story with Reigns will either be scrapped completely or just put on hold for the next month or so, which is not ideal for anyone involved.
