There was an injury during the “Greatest Wrestling Match Ever” that was taped for WWE Backlash last weekend.
Fightful is reporting that Edge was injured and the belief is that he may have a torn tricep. If that is the case then it means that he will be out of action for several months and possibly for the rest of the year.
This is a huge blow for WWE as they are already missing several top names on their weekly shows including Becky Lynch, Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns.
As noted earlier, Edge vs. Orton was originally scheduled for SummerSlam but the match was moved up because Vince McMahon felt he needed more star power on his shows.
The rest of the Backlash event will air live from the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. We will have complete coverage here on WrestlingNews.co. Click here for complete WWE Backlash coverage. We will pass along updates on Edge when we hear more.
