At this time, WWE is dealing with a number of injuries just before the Royal Rumble season. Severe injuries suffered by the elite superstars in the roster decreased the names to appear at the prestigious battle royal that earns a particular one championship shot at the grandest stage of them all. It already gave a lot of headache to the creative heads.
Names like Dean Ambrose and Samoa Joe were ruled out of the men’s Royal Rumble match. On the other hand, Paige has also been declared as an incompetent one for the historic Rumble match for the women’s division. She was one of the favourites to win this match.
In addition, two more names from Raw and Smackdown were seen dealing with a concussion. First notable mention is Kevin Owens from the blue brand, who is set to challenge AJ Styles for the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble. He was absent on the January 16th episode of the Tuesday Night show owing to an injury.
The Prizefighter was also removed from the house shows of Smackdown Live over the weekend. It started worrying the fans hinting he might have to stay out of the in-ring competition, as well. However, NoDQ.com came up with the update regarding his health stating this type of injury is recoverable, quickly.
So, there should not be any problem with Owens’ future appearances and the title match set in the PPV. The move of keeping him away from competition was to avoid a major concussion. Check out the quotes from the source,
“Kevin Owens missed WWE live events over the weekend due to a reported injury. Owens is reportedly dealing with a nagging injury that “comes and goes” but it’s nothing serious enough to have him stop working and get it taken care of. The Royal Rumble match with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs. AJ Styles is still expected to happen.”
Apart from this one, Jason Jordan was also kept aside from in-ring activities due to a minor concussion. Although, he was present on Raw on the January 15th and 22nd edition, it was in a non-wrestling capacity.
He was also removed from tagging in with his partner, Seth Rollins on the house show matches. Roman Reigns replaced him teaming up with Seth Rollins covering up for the young guy. Hopefully, this injury does not affect the Raw tag team championship match at Royal Rumble.
