As we noted last night, Bray Wyatt has been out of action since last week’s WWE television tapings due to a “significant” back injury.

Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter elaborated on the injury on the most recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, adding that Wyatt won’t be out of action for an extended period of time, and that the company has big plans for him after WrestleMania.

“[Wyatt’s] supposed to do something with [Brock] Lesnar at some point, he’s supposed to do something with Roman Reigns again, they’re supposed to go back to that,” Meltzer said. “It sounds like Bray is going to be the top heel down the line, and that hasn’t changed. It’s not like the injury is so big that they have to redo that.”
