WWE legend Brock Lesnar has reportedly been injured on Monday's WWE Raw event, according to Marc Middleton of WrestleNewz.com.
As seen in the opening RAW segment tonight with Triple H and Brock Lesnar, Lesnar was busted open after a shot into the ring post.
Lesnar received twelve staples to close the wound backstage. He is now walking around backstage telling everyone is he completely fine.
WrestleChat.Net then posted more information on the incident:

The youngest WWE champion in history, Lesnar was touted as being one of the next big things for the sport and the company, which makes his injury sustained here a very fascinating development and twist for the sport to take in light of WrestleMania 29.
Lesnar's bout with Triple H had set up a fascinating storyline for the upcoming event at WrestleMania 29, but what that means now with Lesnar's injury is unsure.
The feud between the pair made it seem incredibly likely that they would square off again in New York, but perhaps not now with the injury. Triple H had only just returned to competition after some time off, and the brawl that ensued outside of the ring between the pair at Monday's Raw event made for both fascinating viewing and eager anticipation of what was to come in the near future.
Though that could all be up in the air now with the injury.
We'll have to wait and see how this one plays out, and what potential impacts it will have on the fight card at WrestleMania 29. Least of which being if Triple H and Lesnar will carry on the next round of their rivalry or not at the biggest wrestling event of the year.
We'll know soon enough.
What do you make of Brock Lesnar's injury sustained at RAW?
