*New Spoiler* Terrible news for Matt Riddle!
The summer curse of injuries also affects WWE. A few minutes ago, during the episode of The Bump, it was announced that Riddle suffered an injury following the Rollins attack on Monday’s episode, live from Madison Square Garden (a Stomp on the steel steps).
The former couple champion will not be able to fight again until he has the medical okay and, consequently, the match scheduled for SummerSlam has been postponed to a later date. The former tag team champion reported a brachial plexus injury.
We don’t know, at this moment, if it’s a real injury or storyline, and if so who will be Riddle’s replacement at SummerSlam. The two had started a heated rivalry that had been going on for weeks.
Update on Riddle
This is a bad period for RK-Bro.
Randy Orton has long since been out of the picture with a back injury and is expected to remain in the pits throughout 2022. The Viper was supposed to have a leading role at SummerSlam, possibly in a match against Roman Reigns, but plans have changed along the way.
Now the “Tribal Chief” will face Brock Lesnar in a Last Man Standing Match for the Undisputed Universal Championship. In any case, Riddle has updated fans on his condition, explaining that there is a lot of optimism on his part.
We’ll see if there are other changes to the SummerSlam card: several sources report how Triple H, recently promoted to head of the creative department at WWE, wants to give him the touch to make it clear that there are changes taking place.
The appointment with the great summer event is set for Saturday 30 July. Seth Rollins, on the other hand, seems to be increasingly unleashed despite the streak of defeats in recent months, declaring that he still has his eyes on Roman Reigns.
The two met at the Royal Rumble this year where “the visionary” won, but through disqualification. After the news broke of the match being postponed broke, The Monday Night Messiah apologized to fans on Twitter. “For anyone who purchased a ticket to #SummerSlam hoping to see me in action, I apologize.
I did everything I could over the last 6 months to earn my spot on this show, but some things are out of my control. Thank you for always singing my song. They’ll hear ya someday,” tweeted Rollins. Seth Rollins is still expected to appear at the Biggest Party of the Summer.
