The Wrestling Observer’s Bryan Alvarez is reporting that WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt is expected to be out of action for approximately the next six to eight weeks due to the calf injury that he suffered during a WWE live event in Milan, Italy on April 14th during a match against WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns.

Original plans called for Wyatt to take part in this coming Sunday’s WWE Payback event to take on the League of Nations in a match; however, due to Wyatt’s injury, the match was called off entire League of Nations faction itself was broken up at this week’s SmackDown taping. Furthermore, neither Erick Rowan or Braun Strowman have appeared on WWE programming ever since Wyatt suffered his injury.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog, with one of the topics being the recent passing of Chyna. Below is what he had to say:

“I’d be curious to know how long Joanie Lauer was being prescribed Ambien and Xanax. Long term use of either is totally unadvisable. The extended use of Ambien can be especially destructive as I can attest. I talk much more about this matter regarding Chyna’s death last week on this week’s Ross Report podcast that features ROH COO Joe Koff. Bravo to WWE TV for the terrific video tribute that they presented to honor Chyna on Monday Night Raw. I was honored that my voice made the edit for the highlight package.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
