5 WWE Superstars Who Were Legitimately Injured During WrestleMania Weekend
- WrestleMania weekend wasn't cause for celebration for many WWE superstars
The Show of Shows is now behind us and whilst it included eight title changes and a number of memorable moments for some of the biggest WWE superstars there is obviously a downside to the show since there were a number of injuries brought to light in the days that followed.
The Superstar Shake-up takes place next Monday and Tuesday night and many WWE stars are expected to be in attendance for the draft style atmosphere which will see many names moved from the brands they have called home over the past year. Injuries mean that many stars won't be able to wrestle as part of these shows, but they could still be used on WWE TV if they are considered able-bodied enough to do backstage segments to confirm their switches.
The build-up to The Biggest Party of the Summer has now begun and it appears that many of WWE's planned storylines will be delayed if these stars are stuck on the sidelines in the coming weeks.
#5. Nia Jax
Nia Jax was part of the Women's Tag Team Championship fatal four-way match at WrestleMania, even though the Samoan star didn't play a huge part in the match or the finish. This was her second shot at the gold along with Tamina in just two months and the loss meant that she heads to the back of the line when it comes to challenging in the future.
This is perfect timing, since Jax recently updated her Social Media to state that she would be taking some time away from the ring and this was later revealed by Pro Wrestling Sheet to be because the former Women's Champion has suffered ACL tears in both her knees that will require surgery to repair.
It is unknown how long Jax will be on the shelf for, but it's expected to be around nine months if the tears are severe.
