Bleacher Report catches you up on the latest news from the WWE Universe. 


Alexa Bliss Suffered 'Multiple Concussions' and Has Yet to Receive Clearance for Return

Alexa Bliss hasn't wrestled since losing to Ronda Rousey at Hell in a Cell on Sept. 16. According to the Wrestling Observer Radio's Dave Meltzer (h/t Wrestling Inc's Akhilesh Gannavarapu), she is recovering from "multiple concussions in a short period of time," which has kept her out of the ring.

It's unclear when Bliss will be healthy enough to wrestle again. Acting Raw general manager Baron Corbin named her the captain for Raw's women's team at Survivor Series, with The Goddess selecting her squad rather than representing WWE's flagship show against SmackDown Live.


Luke Harper Photographed with Cast on Left Hand

Like Bliss, Luke Harper has been on the shelf for the last few months. His last appearance on WWE programming was in a defeat to The New Day on the Aug. 21 edition of SmackDown Live. It would appear a hand or wrist injury is preventing him from wrestling for the time being.

Comedian Brad Williams shared a photo of Harper, in which a cast is visible on his left hand:
