Jake Roberts
In a sign of just how popular and mainstream Jake Roberts was during the 1980s, several media outlets provided coverage of the WWE legend being sent to the hospital this week.

Ryback
When word broke that Ryback was injured, there were some reports of skepticism from WWE officials that there really was no injury. However, the legitimacy of his health has been proven, as Ryback has posted a video of himself in the hospital. He clearly did go under the knife. It is being said that Ryback has worked with strained groins and hernias for the last year.

While working a tag team match with Eddie Edwards at a TNA live event in Pennsylvania, Davey Richards suffered a serious leg injury.

Ethan Carter
Things did not go exactly as planned for Ethan Carter on Impact Wrestling last night. The TNA star was busted open by an errant shot from a trash can. Carter was taken to a New York City hospital, so that doctors could give him a dozen staples to close the wound. The belief is that he will not be missing any of the upcoming episodes, but he might just be used in segments instead.

Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Jim Ross had to spend a night in the hospital, as the former WWE commentator had a bit of a health scare and his wife wanted to be safer than sorry. Ross revealed that a couple of people contacted him at the hospital to check up on him. Jerry Lawler and Steve Austin were two of them. The other was Vince McMahon, which was a little bit surprising as there have been rumors floating around for the last year that there is some backstage heat between the two.

Brock Lesnar
While a lot of people assume that he is an asshole because of his reserved nature, Brock Lesnar actually impressed quite a bit of people in WWE with the amount of respect that he showed the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30.

Billy Gunn
Since the performers have a tendency to go all out during the biggest wrestling pay per view of the year, it should come as no surprise that there were several Wrestlemania 30 injuries. Undertaker was sent to the hospital for a potential concussion and injured neck. Billy Gunn was said to be bleeding internally. A lot of other performers suffered the usual cuts and bruises. Rough night for WWE stars.
April 8, 2014

Normally, the CEO would be there until the very end, but he opted to ride in the ambulance with the Undertaker to the hospital. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon were left in charge of the pay per view.
April 7, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Considering how brutal the match at Wrestlemania 30 was for him, it comes as no surprise to many backstage that Undertaker was taken to a local hospital in an ambulance after taking a beating from Brock Lesnar.

April 7, 2014
John Cena
Reports are surfacing that the knee injury suffered on Monday Night Raw by John Cena was a work. The belief is that WWE had too much coverage on the incident for it to be real.

February 25, 2014

May 4, 2014
CM Punk
"I don't know, man, who knows, right? That's something that only he can answer for sure. To me, if he hasn't come back already, then... I left the WWE for two-and-a-half years in 2005. The only difference was I left when my contract was up, but I disappeared too, because I just was over it. I couldn't take it anymore, I wasn't interested in being there, I was getting miserable, so I know how he feels. I had no intention of coming back, and after two-and-a-half years I watched Shawn Michaels vs John Cena at WrestleMania 23 and that inspired me to want to come back, but it took two-and-a-half years to get there. So my answer is, 'I don't know', but I just know how I was when I did the same thing. It took a long time for me to be able to come back, and I was probably the same age as CM Punk is now too, so maybe he's going through the same thing and after a few years he'll come back." - Chris Jericho on the backstage heat situation in WWE involving Punk
May 2, 2014
