It could be a bit. There are all kinds of injuries in wrestling and some of them can be rather serious. You never know when you are going to see someone get hurt and put on the shelf, which can change things up in a big way. Such an injury can take place out of nowhere and unfortunately there isn’t much that can be done about them. That was the case again last week and now we have an idea about where things are going.

Last week on SmackDown, a match between Carmelo Hayes and Austin Theory was stopped when they two had crashed onto the mat out of the corner. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Theory got the worst of the landing and is said to be in medical protocol. There is no word on when Theory will return to the ring. There is no word on what kind of injury either has suffered.

Theory is quite good. Check out his time in the ring:

Opinion: That is not something you never want to see and now the only thing we can do is wait to see just how long Theory will be out of action. Theory is a talented star and now there is a chance that he could be out of the ring for a long time now. It was a nasty landing and unfortunately that is the kind of thing that can happen to any wrestler at any time, Theory included.

What do you think of Theory? Is he better on his own or as part of a team? Let us know in the comments below.
