That’s a long time. There are all kinds of injuries that a wrestler can suffer and some of them are a lot more serious than others. You never know how long someone is going to be out of action, but you can have a good guess of just how bad something might be. Unfortunately that is the case again, as a top WWE star is injured and could be out for a long time.
Over the weekend, Becky Lynch suffered a shoulder injury during her Summerslam match with Bianca Belair. The injury was later announced as a separated shoulder, which Lynch confirmed this week on Monday Night Raw. During the same show, Bayley, Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai attacked Lynch with a chair to the shoulder. WWE has sent since out a tweet, announcing that as a result of the initial injury and attack, Lynch will be out for “several months”. There is no word on when she will return to the ring.
After suffering a separated shoulder at #SummerSlam, @BeckyLynchWWE’s injury was further exacerbated after an attack from @itsBayleyWWE, @ImKingKota, and IYO SKY earlier tonight on #WWERaw. As a result, @BeckyLynchWWE is expected to be out for several months. pic.twitter.com/eaWeubYqso

Opinion: That is some very bad news to hear as you never want to see someone put on the shelf for any time at all, let alone a big name being out of action for so long. Lynch could be gone for a long time and that is going to open a door for some other stars to step up and take her place. That should make for some interesting situations and I’m curious to see just how it goes.
What does this mean for WWE? Who could fill in Lynch’s spot? Let us know in the comments below.
