Report: WWE Suffering 'Unusually High' Amount Of Injuries

The WWE roster is hurting

Injuries are part and parcel of the wrestling business, but WWE are currently experiencing an "unusually high" number of them. 

Writing in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer noted that there are a lot of absences right now due to injuries and other medical issues, with most of them being in the developmental system. 

Per Meltzer, there are currently about a dozen developmental talents out of action, including Amari Miller, Arianna Grace, Nikkita Lyons, Roderick Strong, Sanga, Blair Davenport, Yulisa Leon, and several other trainees. 

On the main roster, Big E, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Ronda Rousey, Kofi Kingston, Robert Roode, Tommaso Ciampa, AJ Styles, Aliyah, Drew McIntyre, Johnny Gargano and Carmella are all sidelined for one reason or another. 

Big E recently provided a positive update on his neck injury following a one-year scan, though a comeback may not happen anytime soon. 

Randy Orton, meanwhile, is reportedly 'nowhere close' to an in-ring return as he continues to recover from back fusion surgery.
