WWE announced today that Riddle was injured during an attack by Seth Rollins on Monday Night Raw. The King of Bros’ match with Rollins at SummerSlam has been postponed. Fortunately, the injury is just part of a storyline.
It was reported on today’s episode of ‘The Bump’ that Riddle suffered a “brachial plexus injury.” In layman’s terms, they said he has a stinger. That injury is not legitimate.
Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that the injury was written into the storyline due to “creative adjustments.” Ringside News exclusively reported that SummerSlam would see some changes after Triple H took over creative. The bout between Riddle and Seth Rollins is expected to be moved to Clash at the Castle, but nothing has been finalized. Rollins is still expected to be in Nashville for SummerSlam.
“WWE announced Wednesday that the match would not be taking place, citing an injury to Riddle. We’re told that the injury is kayfabe, and there are a plans to do the match down the line. Those we spoke to claim it was due to “creative adjustments.”
We’re told talent was informed Monday, and the working plan was to have the match take place at Clash at the Castle in September. However, with the ever-changing WWE landscape, it’s quite possible that isn’t final.
As of now, Seth Rollins is still expected to travel to Nashville for Summerslam weekend, and has media obligations scheduled Friday.”
It will be interesting to see what happens with Seth Rollins at SummerSlam. He is likely too big of a star not to have some participation in the show. While he may not be facing Riddle, time will tell just what WWE has in store for Seth.
