Not so fast? The injury bug has bitten WWE hard as of late, with a variety of injuries taking their toll on the roster. This has hit all kinds of people, ranging from monsters like Braun Strowman, all the way to the women’s division like Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss. Both women are still in prominent roles on WWE TV, but the question is when will they be back. We now have updates on both.
At the moment, neither Lynch nor Bliss are currently cleared to get back into the ring. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Lynch has been cleared of the concussion, but not of the broken bone in her face. She is likely to be cleared by TLC on the 16th. On the other hand, according to Wrestling Observer Live, Bliss isn’t cleared yet either and is training in a special ring at the WWE Performance Center meant to take away the impact of bumps. At the moment, she might be returning at the Royal Rumble in January.
Lynch has still been tearing it up on the microphone. Check out what she had to say on this week’s SmackDown Live:
Opinion: Lynch is the better result here, as it’s a broken bone rather than a concussion or something else that needs an undetermined amount of time to heal. You can pretty much guess when a broken bone will be healed and that puts Lynch on a much firmer time scale. Hopefully Bliss is back sooner rather than later, though she’s been great in her role as boss of the Raw women’s division.
Which of these two will have a bigger impact upon their return? Who does WWE need back in the ring more? Let us know in the comments below.
