Every champion coming out of WrestleMania 31 is now injured

Tonight's news that John Cena is injured, and that his surgery will likely keep him out of WrestleMania for the first time in more than a decade, has triggered a wide range of reactions.

This realization will probably do more for the folks panicking than for those looking at this as an opportunity.

Coming out of Northern California and WrestleMania 31, the wrestlers holding WWE gold were Seth Rollins (WWE World Heavyweight champion), Daniel Bryan (Intercontinental), John Cena (United States), Nikki Bella (Divas) and Cesaro & Tyson Kidd (Tag Team).

All six are injured, and likely to miss WrestleMania 32. Including both of the tag champs!

We can discuss and debate along with our thoughts on freaking or chilling out about this year's card, but if you're the superstitious type, I won't judge you for calling this "the Play Button curse".

Or, you know, anything catchier you can come up with.
