The WWE have had a shocking record with injuries in the past few months as well as all throughout 2015.
You just have to look at the WrestleMania 32 card to see all the stars that had to miss the WWE's biggest show of the year through injury, as Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Cesaro, the now-retired Daniel Bryan and John Cena all missed out. While Cena did appear, he didn't wrestle because of a shoulder surgery.
Just like Rollins and Bryan did in years previous, Bray Wyatt got injured on one of the first nights of the WWE's European tour, with the leader of The Wyatt Family suffering a calf injury. While it was initially believed that Bray would be back within a few weeks, there has been a new update that says it isn't the case.

Originally, it was reported that Wyatt was only going to be out for around a month, with the calf injury not looking too serious.
However, the new estimate has 'The Eater of Worlds' being out for potentially double the original expected time period.
2 Months Out
Bryan Alvarez reported on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Live, via NoDQ, that Bray is expected to be out of action for 6-8 weeks.
Wyatt suffered his injury during a match against the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns in Italy on one of the first nights of the tour.
Wyatt was just backing Reigns up into a corner and it looked like he just slipped slightly, which caused the injury. Bray tried to carry on but the match was stopped by the referee after he threw up the 'X' to signal that Wyatt was hurt.
This is a big blow for Wyatt as before the injury, it looked like the WWE were setting up for Bray to start teaming with Roman Reigns as some sort of tweener group, with a potentially very interesting storyline accompanying it.
Now, with Wyatt out for potentially the next two months, it will be interesting to see what they do with him on his return. Will they put him back in a story with Reigns or will the former Shield member be too far into a new program for a change to make sense.
We'll have to wait and find out.
