That could get worse. There are all kinds of injuries that you can see in wrestling and some of them can be quite serious. In addition to the injuries that happen in the blink of an eye, there are also injuries that build up over time and cause issues down the line. Those can be bigger problems than others and unfortunately that seems to be the case for a top WWE star at the moment.
According to Prowrestling.net and Fightful Select, WWE’s Drew McIntyre was pulled from live events this weekend due to lower back pain. At the moment, the injury is not thought to be severe enough to require surgery and McIntyre will rest instead. McIntyre wrestled this week on SmackDown in a tag match and is scheduled to challenge Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Undisputed Title at Clash At The Castle on September 4.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that you never want to hear about as back pain can be the sort of injury that keeps you on the shelf for a long time. Maybe the rest is enough to keep things from getting worse, but McIntyre might be in some trouble down the line. McIntyre is a huge star in WWE and it would be terrible to see him put on the shelf for any length of time.
What do you think of McIntyre? Who could take his place if he is out of action? Let us know in the comments below.
