Bray Wyatt only expected to be out 4-6 weeks

A bit of good news regarding the latest WWE injury.

On the opening night of WWE's European tour on April 13, Bray Wyatt appeared to suffer a leg injury during his main event match against Roman Reigns in Milan. WWE later confirmed that Wyatt had suffered a right calf injury, but was mum on the specifics or the severity of the injury.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reports that the backstage news is Wyatt suffered a pulled muscle and will be out of action for four to six weeks. The injury reportedly isn't as bad as anyone initially feared, which is good news for WWE and for Wyatt.

WWE had been building a Wyatt Family vs. League of Nations feud, but with Wyatt out of action at least through the Payback pay-per-view on May 1, that program is off the table for the time being. It is still possible for Wyatt to return to action in time for Extreme Rules on May 22.

Another member of the Wyatt Family, Luke Harper, is currently out of action with a much more severe leg injury. The two healthy members of the Wyatt Family, Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman, are being kept off television until Wyatt can return.
