Reports have surfaced that his ribs were severely damaged last night, and some are saying that it occurred when Bray Wyatt did a senton splash from the ropes to the arena floor.

The medical team put him in a cast to help alleviate the pain. Despite that, though, he still went through with his performance.

While the majority of fans are hoping that Undertaker gets the win at Wrestlemania, there are those backstage in WWE that feel that it would be best for business if Bray Wyatt were to pick up the much needed victory, one that would give him enough momentum to head back into a main event scene that is set to feature a baby face champion in Roman Reigns. A loss for the Phenom would build anticipation for another return next year.

Among the performers backstage, there is a certain elite group of people over the years that have been booked strong in the Royal Rumble. Many view that as an accomplishment because WWE is quite selective in how the battle royal is booked. A performer that joined this year was Bray Wyatt, who was allowed to work nearly 50 minutes by management. While not as prestigious as being the winner, longevity is quite the accomplishment.

Considering the stature that he has reached, it is understandable that Chris Jericho has a lot of clout backstage in WWE. He often times gets to choose the opponent that he wants to work with. Bray Wyatt was a handpicked choice. During a recent interview, the former world heavyweight champion listed three more wrestlers that he wants to work with when he makes his next return. Jericho listed Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose as the three.
