Whats up my fellow wrestling fans... I came to bring you what i have heard as of late. Basista may not be injured but wwe is covering up for a drug violation?
No, I don't buy it. Jeff Hardy is a big merchandise seller and was going to be made a headliner last year when he failed a wellness test before Mania. WWE got out in front of it and announced his violation, and suspended him. They totally changed their plans based around Jeff's incident and I think they would do the same with Batista. The only two people in that company I would buy the possibility that they'd cover for on a drug failure are Cena and H. Batista is a big name, but there's all those rumors he may retire soon, so I just don't buy it.
According to their report concerning Batista's injury, he suffered a completely torn left biceps requiring surgery that will keep him out of action for at least four months - not a torn tendon.
Yes, but if you check out PWInsider they have reported that they are saying complete tear because it makes Legacy's attack seem more brutal and devastating. I think it's a load because it's not like they're suddenly going to book that trio as a bunch of bad asses I'd say, so while normally I'd say "sure, exaggerate the injury for story purposes and try to make a negative a positive" I see no point here because they won't use it to their best advantage. But that's the real story there.
Among some of the wrestlers, there has been plenty of skepticism over the true severity of his injury. The injury supposedly occurred over three weeks ago, but he had been working television, pay-per-views, and live events without any sort of tape on his arm whatsoever, let alone showing any signs of an injury. If the biceps tear was serious, and people within WWE are claiming it was serious enough for him to get surgery two days after his championship victory, it would certainly have been taped up. If the injury was not serious enough to require tape, one would think there would be no need for surgery.
How many house shows did Batista work in between though? I don't have the numbers in front of me. Also, wrestlers pride themselves on being "tougher then normal" and gutting through injuries and having a toughness normal men don't have. CM Punk fractured his skull in the ring and finished his match. H worked for 5 or 10 minutes on a torn quad. Taz broke his freakin neck in the ring and then drove himself to the hospital which the dr's didn't believe because they said it was medically impossible. Don't doubt what a determined wrestler can accomplish.
At Monday's Raw in Lafayette%u200E, the wrestlers were told his injury was legitimate and he was having surgery the next day. However, the talk among wrestlers in the locker room is that his injury angle on Raw was a cover-up to have him avoid being suspended due to a violation of the company's drug testing policy.
I have not heard this, not even a LITTLE. This smacks to me of one of these crap bag rumor sites that like to make up newz just to sound like they have an inside scoop. The same kind of sites that would say Big Daddy V died in a car crash (there were sites reporting that a few years back).
Did anyone hear if Rey is actually leaving the company? Becuse it does not sound like him. I just hope not..they realy need some top guys right now. Raw really only has randy and HHH right now as maineventers.... Cena is in some random fueds with the bigshow and is being lowere out of the maineven as of late.
As I said, I've only heard Rey is looking to rehab a nagging knee injury. The Observer is reporting the "leaving the company" story, but I haven't heard it from anywhere else. The Observer does have a good track record but it has fallen off in terms of accuracy over the last decade or so. So I'd file it under "possible" but not so much "likely" and certainly not "definite".
