ProWrestling.com is reporting the HBK sustained a quite serious injury over the last couple days, and might be done. Anyone hear anything about this in a more reputable fasion?

PW Insider is also reporting this one, albeit without the horribly grim prognosis, and it looks like Meltzer is confirming it at the Observer. That's a huge shame, because that blowoff at the next PPV could have been a classic.

If there's a silver lining here, it's that HBK could have one more Wrestlemania in him and this feud with Jericho deserves a WM blowoff.

Especially once Jericho "takes him out" to cause the injury...

I think the "might be done" part comes from the Observer audio show, when Bryan Alvarez goes "so do you think he might be done?" and Dave is like, "maybe. probably not." But he was asking not because of the severity of the injury, but because he's so cumulatively banged up and was contemplating retirement last year while he was out with the knee injury before they called him back when Cena got injured.

With a six month recovery time, it should work out perfectly.

I would have a hard time seeing Michaels end his career on a down note.

The first time he retired, not only was the injury more serious, but it came in what was, at the time, probably one of the biggest matches in company history.

From a storyline perspective, this is actually great --- Jericho (and Cade) team up to brutally injure HBK at Unforgiven, 'ending his career.' Then Michaels gets time off to recuperate and if he is able or willing to return by Wrestlemania, they can have the big blowoff match with Jericho in Michaels' home state. If HBK really decides to hang it up, then that match takes on Flair-at-W24 proportions.



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

WWE sure has been blessed with not-as-serious injuries this month. It's the anti-2007.

    Before the MRI, my doctor was 99.9 percent sure that I had a full tear of my triceps and that I would experience bruising, swelling and a loss of my range of motion. Through the power of prayer, none of those things happened and I am ready for Unforgiven.


I guess Orton is not praying hard enough.

From "career-ending" to "no time off needed". HBK's definitely got John Cena beat.
