5 Superstars who are currently injured and when they might return
Being a pro wrestler in no cakewalk. In fact, one of the hardest parts of the life of a pro wrestler is the physical punishment they have to go through on a daily basis, week after week. The passionate men and women who put their bodies on the line for the entertainment of the fans know what they are into, and yet choose to continue doing it for their love of the business.

Injuries - minor or major - affect almost every Superstar at some stage of their career. More often than not, a badly timed injury can derail the momentum that would have taken many years to build. Some wrestlers like Shawn Michaels and Daniel Bryan were able to get back into the ring after fighting career-threatening injuries for years together, but at the same time, many others haven't been so lucky.
Indeed, there have been many top stars in the history of WWE who have had their careers cut short due to injury - like Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bret "The Hitman" Hart and more recently Corey Graves and current SmackDown General Manager Paige. The most terrible fate of the lot, of course, was met by Owen Hart who lost his life after his harness broke while being lowered to the ring.
So, if a wrestler is able to recover completely and make an impactful comeback, it is more than they could have hoped for.
With that in mind, let us list five Superstars who are currently injured, and when they might return.
#5 Sami Zayn
Starting off with the latest Superstar to enter the injured list, rumors emerged after Raw this past week that Sami Zayn has been working through an injury for quite a while now and is set to take time off to recover.
In fact, Money in the Bank will be the last date Zayn will be working for a while, as he scheduled to travel to Birmingham, Alabama to get his injury assessed. PWInsider, who first reported the injury, also speculates that Zayn's injury was one of the reasons for his match versus Lashley being a one-sided affair.
