The bad news just keeps piling up for WWE superstar Evan Bourne, as it was revealed last night that an injury to his foot would keep him out indefinitely. Details about the cause of the injury are not known.
Then Bourne tweeted pictures of the injury, and I almost threw up.
While the injury is serious enough to warrant questions about how and when the high-flyer would be able to return to action, it comes on the heels of the star’s second suspension from WWE because of a failed drug test.
The patience that was already running paper thin may have just disintegrated in the minds of WWE management.
Evan Bourne brings us all the news about his injury and horrible pictures at his Twitter:
I hate throw out bad news but I must.I was in an accident Monday and mangled my foot.Sorry to delay the comeback, I'm down but not out!— airbourne(@findevan) March 24, 2012
Broken in 4 spots, dislocated in 5! Ouch! I wish I was back in the ring already. Until then here is a gross picyfrog.com/oex83ulj— airbourne(@findevan) March 24, 2012
Another shot of my injury...so rotten.I'm gonna be bitter about this for a little while yfrog.com/oblsuwrj— airbourne(@findevan) March 24, 2012
While I know WWE loves giving people second and third and fourth chances (just ask Drew McIntyre), this is a much more serious case.
The reason WWE management loved Bourne in the first place was his ability to get over with the kids.
Bourne was drawing money for merchandise and his tag-team with Kofi Kingston (Air-Boom) was actually something tag-team wrestling fans could enjoy. After all of this success, Bourne lost his momentum with two-straight drug suspensions.
With his injury looking as severe as he claims it to be, there's no telling how long the superstar will be out of action. While he hopes that time will help heal his wound, as well as the wounds he keeps leaving on the WWE, Vince McMahon can’t be happy right now.
I don’t believe we ever see Evan Bourne in WWE again. TNA X-Division, meet your newest face!
