It appears that the former World Champion and one half of the current Raw Tag Team champion Sheamus is suffering from a serious injury which has previously ended careers of a number of top WWE Stars.
As we noted before, Sheamus had missed last week’s episode of Raw and WWE covered his absence from the show by saying that he was on his ‘annual sabbatical’, though in a video the Raw Star himself had said that he is rehabbing from a neck injury.
Dave Meltzer also discussed his status in the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, revealing that he is recovering from spinal stenosis, which is not a good thing at all:
“While they said Sheamus was out of action last week because he was on a trip back to Ireland, he’s actually rehabbing spinal stenosis, which is not a good thing at all, Spinal stenosis ended the careers of Edge and Steve Austin.”
Although Dave didn’t open up much about his condition, the fact that he is dealing with such a serious injury and WWE is trying to hide it is still worrying.
Though the good news is that Sheamus is not taking any time off and he is scheduled for a match at this week’s Raw so it’s believed that his injury is not very serious. We’ll keep you posted if any further detail about his condition comes to light.
