- Sources in WWE are telling The Wrestling Observer that Colin Cassady's injury is a work. He's been on crutches but he's selling the beatdown from Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder. Cassady wrestled at the house shows over the weekend. It's looking like they will be in a storyline against the new tag champs.
WWE announced the following:
ORLANDO, Fla. — Colin Cassady suffered a sprained MCL and bone bruise in his left knee as a result of an attack by Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson, WWE.com has confirmed.
Dash & Dawson ambushed Cassady and tag team partner Enzo Amore from behind, before a scheduled bout on the Oct. 28 edition of WWE NXT.
According to NXT medical personnel, Cassady did not sustain any damage to his ACL in the incident.
The injury is not unlike that suffered by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in September, which to date has sidelined Roethlisberger for about four weeks.
Cassady is expected to be out of the ring for four to six weeks as he recovers from the injury.
- We noted on Wednesday that The Undertaker is scheduled for the Smackdown tapings on 11/10 in Manchester, England. The talk over the weekend was that Taker would be done after Sunday's Hell in a Cell but I guess WWE asked him if he could do that show since there were still plenty of tickets left. My guess is that he will wrestle on the dark match after Smackdown.
We get asked this every now and then...The Undertaker is not on twitter or Facebook or any kind of social media. His wife Michelle McCool is. Apparently there is an Undertaker facebook page with over 100,000 followers. It's not him.
