10 worst WWE injuries caught on camera
Professional wrestling is a dangerous business. Sure, people say that it's scripted and that it isn't real like MMA is, but the fact of the matter is, the moves that professional wrestlers pull off require years of training in order to perform safely. Those "Don't Try This at Home" PSAs are there for a reason, you know.
But, regardless of how much practice these sports entertainers have, there are instances when there is some very real damage that their bodies go through. Most of the time, they're minor enough that they recover quickly, but there are instances when even these seasoned veterans are hurt in their line of work.
While some of these gruesome injuries (a la Seth Rollins) have happened on House Shows, a fair number of them have happened live on WWE programming - either on TV episodes of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live or on pay-per-views. Today, we're here to look at the latter category.
So, without any further ado, here is our list of the 10 worst WWE injuries caught on camera:
Honorable mention: Tyson Kidd breaks his neck
There's a reason why Samoa Joe has not used the Muscle Buster on the main roster! Rewind to Joe's match against Tyson Kidd and you get your answer.
While it was certainly not Joe's fault, a nasty bump off the Muscle Buster broke Kidd's neck and effectively put him out of commission and, as things stand, may have possibly ended his career.
#10 Finn Balor injures his shoulder at WWE Summerslam 2016
This one happened nearly a year ago at WWE Summerslam 2016 when Finn Balor and Seth Rollins collided for the WWE Universal Championship. Thought Balor won the match to become the inaugural WWE Universal Champion, he was forced to relinquish the belt just a day later due to the injury he suffered during the title bout.
As you can see above, Finn's shoulder gets completed jacked when he's thrown into the barricade by Seth. It would be months before we saw "The Demon King" return to action.
