Yesterday, we reported the news that WWE superstar Bray Wyatt had seemingly suffered another injury.
The SmackDown star faced off against Dolph Ziggler in a number one contender match for Dean Ambrose's WWE World Championship, with the winner facing off against The Lunatic Fringe at SummerSlam.
During the match, Wyatt appeared to be in some pain and reports emerged that he was hurt. Those reports have now been confirmed.

Respected wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer confirmed on Wrestling Observer Radio, via Wrestling Inc, today that Wyatt has indeed sprained his ankle.
"Wyatt was still planning on working weekend WWE live events as of Wednesday morning. If he does miss this weekend's matches, that could indicate that the injury is serious as he was intent on wrestling this weekend," Wrestling Inc added.
"Meltzer also confirmed that WWE wanted Wyatt to stop the match on Tuesday night but he refused."
Apparently, after Wyatt rolled his ankle, he wasn't selling at all. The referee in the match did indeed throw up the 'X' that signifies an injury and WWE trainers outside the ring wanted the match to end so that Wyatt wouldn't do any more damage to his ankle.
After already missing two months this year due to another leg injury, Wyatt obviously wants to prove that he's not injury prone and can be trusted.
You just have to look at the sad case of Wade Barrett to know that the WWE won't push superstars who get hurt, no matter how over they are.
Hopefully, Wyatt won't be out of action.
