Pro wrestler Windham Lawrence Rotunda, who goes by the name Bray Wyatt in the ring, is now winning out over his toughest challenger yet. After recently suffering a car accident head injury in Florida, Wyatt was hospitalized. He missed some WWE wrestling events including the popular ‘Monday Night Raw.’
A car accident head injury, also called Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI, can be devastating.
Wyatt suffered multiple car accident injuries in the crash. According to reports, the wrestling star was driving to the airport when he was involved in a rear-end collision. Apparently, Wyatt hit the car in front of him, which caused that car to crash into another vehicle. Police say that Wyatt caused the car accident by “not being attentive” behind the wheel. In what is likely a case of distracted driving, police cited him for “careless driving due to his failure to operate his vehicle in a careful and prudent manner.”
Returns to Ring Despite Car Accident Head Injury
After the car crash, in which his car was totaled, Tampa General Hospital admitted Wyatt. He reportedly suffered multiple injuries in addition to the TBI, but was released after a brief stay. The WWE issued a statement saying, “Due to the injuries sustained, Wyatt did not compete at this weekend’s WWE Live Events. And he will not be present at tonight’s Raw.” However, within a week, Wyatt had returned to competition. Matt Hardy, Wyatt’s WWE Raw Tag Team partner, announced his return to defend their title in Philadelphia.
