Wrestling is one of the most physically demanding forms of entertainment.
In fact, not a month goes by without a report of a wrestler getting injured during a match. So it should come as no surprise that two stars were hurt during the "Granddaddy of Them All."
WWE's website posted video of Triple H getting x-rays on his arm after his WrestleMania 29 fight with Brock Lesnar last night. Doctors told The Game he likely had a muscle contusion and should ice it down. Triple H told the camera it's not broken.
WrestlingInc.com also noted that "Ryback was seen limping after his match with Mark Henry at WrestleMania 29."
Obviously, Triple H is still a part-timer, so he will have all of the time he needs to heal. Ryback, however, is still considered one of WWE's top young guns, so chances are that he will have to work through his injury.
Either way, both men will probably have limited TV time on Monday night's Raw. Historically, the WWE tends to use the night after 'Mania as a chance to build-up new feuds and utilize stars that weren't featured at the pay-per-view.
That being said, WrestlingInc.com is reporting that Sunday's nixed eight-person mixed tag match will be featured on Raw, so at least we have that to look forward to.
The WWE will do its best to ensure that both men are up and running in no time. As previously mentioned, the company will probably continue to use Ryback during his healing time as he is too big of a name to lose right now.
In the end, we should be thankful that both performers weren't seriously injured and that they will be able to continue on without skipping a beat.
