WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt was injured in a car accident on Friday, when he “sustained multiple injuries,” according to WWE. Wyatt, who is one-half of the “Monday Night Raw” Tag Team Champions, will miss tonight’s TV show.
Wyatt was en route to the airport for this past weekend’s “Raw” WWE Live Events when he was in a head-on automobile collision that left his car totaled, the professional wrestling company wrote on its website. He was treated at Tampa General Hospital and has since been released.
No further details are currently available on the extent of Wyatt’s injuries.
Wyatt is the real-life brother of fellow WWE Superstar Bo Dallas. Wyatt and Hardy — the Deleters of Worlds — are set to defend their “Raw” tag team titles against Dallas and Curtis Axel — the B-Team — at July 15 pay-per-view Extreme Rules. It is currently unclear when Wyatt will return to the ring, however.
Windham Lawrence Rotunda — Wyatt’s real name — used to wrestle under ring moniker Husky Harris. He and Dallas (and Axel, for that matter) come from a long line of successful pro wrestlers. Wyatt and Dallas (real name Taylor Michael Rotunda) are the sons of Mike Rotunda, nephews of Barry Windham, and grandsons of Blackjack Mulligan.
At February 12, 2017’s Elimination Chamber PPV, Wyatt won the WWE Championship by defeating John Cena, AJ Styles, The Miz, Dean Ambrose, and Baron Corbin in an Elimination Chamber match. After a 49-day reign, Wyatt dropped the big belt to Randy Orton.
“Raw” airs Monday nights from 8-11 p.m. ET on USA Network.
