WWE Superstars put their bodies through all sorts of injuries during the rough lifestyle of pro wrestling. Taking bumps in the ring for an extended amount of time can do a number on anyway and the following Superstars are currently out of action for one reason or another.
While some of them might have return dates within sight, others might be more unclear concerning when we could expect to see them work again. We have tried our best to make a comprehensive list at this time.
We have tried our best to accumulate a complete list of out-of-action Superstars and we tried our best to make sure we covered everyone. Hopefully, we will see them wrestle again very soon. But the most important part is to make sure that they stay healthy and if that means that they can’t wrestle then that, unfortunately, must be the case. This list is also rather lengthy, so we’ve separated it into pages for easier viewing.
Dolph Ziggler had some reports come out on his foot recently. These are very new reports and he just worked Survivor Series, but he did get to sit out Raw the following night. We’re not sure how severe Ziggler’s injury might be at this time, or if it will keep him off the road, but it has been reported that The Show Off is dealing with some kind of foot injury. It isn’t said to be bad though so hopefully, he won’t miss much time in the ring.
Braun Strowman has been out of action since last week and it is said that he suffered from bone spurs in his elbow. WWE would like to have him back by TLC so he can face Baron Corbin, but it is a touch and go situation with no definite certainty at this point. However, he is still planned to face Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble.
Kevin Owens had double knee surgery and is still recovering. As we exclusively reported, he could be cleared by December but they might hold off until after WrestleMania for a big return. He could return following WrestleMania for a big pop which is likely and a babyface role could be coming his way as well.
Alexa Bliss is currently out of action due to concussions. She might be willing, but the doctors won’t clear her. But she’s taking her progress step by step and will hopefully, make a return soon. However, in the meantime, she’s expected to remain on WWE television until that day happens
Becky Lynch suffered a broken nose and a severe concussion thanks to Nia Jax during the SmackDown invasion of Raw during the go-home show for WrestleMania. She is factored into some big plans and is currently receiving treatments, so hopefully, her return will come very soon.
Eric Rowan tore his right bicep in August just as The Bludgeon Brothers were SmackDown Tag Team Champions. They had to relinquish their titles at the time, but a return for Rowan while expected hasn’t been hinted at yet.
Luke Harper is out of action for some kind of wrist injury which required surgery. This injury wasn’t known about until it was full disclosed on social media by Harper since his tag team partner was off the road it didn’t seem to register that he wasn’t on the road too due to an injury, but he is currently injured as well.
Sami Zayn became a heel and alongside Kevin Owens, they were very entertaining as the Yep Movement against Shane McMahon. He had to undergo two surgeries just like his BFF Owens, only Zayn’s surgeries were on his rotator cuffs. Hopefully, as we exclusively reported February 2019 will see his return if all goes according to plan.
Triple H injured himself during the WWE Crown Jewel main event in one of the opening spots in the main event match. He took a Harley Race bump over the ropes like he’s done 100’s of times before. Only this time he tore his pectoral muscle. He finished out the match in Saudi Arabia, but he was flown right back to Birgimham Alabama afterward where they were ready for him and he promptly had surgery with hopes for a WrestleMania return although that might be cutting it very close due to the time it will take for him to heal.
Fandango suffered a torn labrum and has been out of action since July. He looks to be healing nicely though and his social media has shown him enjoying life while he waits for his medical clearance and for creative to come up with something for him to do.
Matt Hardy’s injuries are due to a lifetime of taking hard bumps. He sent out a tweet a few months ago saying his lower back and pelvis have started fusing togehter. He is currently working backstage in WWE after he wrestled his final contractual obligated match and although he could be done in the ring for good, you can never could out the Woken One.
Jason Jordan suffered a neck injury about a year ago and although he had the surgery and has rehabilitated his injury, reports are he is still having problems with grip strength which isn’t a good sign. Hopefully, he’ll be able to find a role backstage as reports were he was shadowing to become a WWE producer.
Paige was forced to retire due to the injuries to her neck that accumulated since wrestling since the womb. She great up taking bumps and at this point, spinal stenosis, the same problem Edge suffers from made her return far too young. She is still around WWE on television as an authority figure on SmackDown Live and cast member of Total Divas, but she’s not wrestling again due to the serious risks involved.
Roman Reigns announced on October 22nd that he has been battling leukemia for the past 11 years and although he beat it before, the awful disease is now back and he was forced to relinquish the WWE Universal Title in the process. Although he’s not technically injured, he’s unable to work and do what he loves so he made the final entry on this list as default although he probably should have been first.
Reigns has started treatment to eradicate the disease once again and he promised that he will be back very soon, we just don’t know exactly how long that will be seeing how leukemia treatments can vary dependant on the exact type of leukemia he is suffering from which still remains unclear. But we can’t wait for his return.
