Sad news coming from the FCW front as Bray Wyatt, formerly known as Husky Harris, tore his pectoral muscle. According to wrestlezone.com, he is slated to undergo surgery.

The article states, "Following surgery, Wyatt is expected to be out of action for at least 6 months. The injury took place during an FCW event last week in Melbourne, FL."

This is a big blow to the FCW roster as Wyatt is widely considered to be one of the more agile big men in wrestling today. He also comes from a lineage of talented stars as he is the son of Mike Rutonda and nephew of Barry Windham.

Which also means that his grandfather is the legendary "Blackjack" Mulligan.

Harris received a small main-roster push as a member of The Nexus in 2011, but was subsequently punted back to FCW, courtesy of Randy Orton. During his time in FCW, Wyatt has seen mild success, holding the FCW tag titles twice alongside his brother Bo. He also maintained an amazing feud with Richie Steamboat.

In the end, Wyatt is only 25 and fortunate enough to have youth on his side. However, if he doesn't come back fully charged and ready to go, that could easily kill any momentum he had prior to this injury.

Ultimately, only time will tell if he will heal well and be ready to go.
