Regarding Edge’s reported torn triceps injury at WWE Backlash, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that the injury occurred during re-takes after the entire match had already been filmed.
“There was multiple stuff that they filmed multiple times. He got hurt during the second tapings. I was told the injury happened during the second taping when they were going through other stuff.” (quote courtesy of RingsideNews.com)
WWE did everything possible to hide the injury which is why no information came out about it until the day of the show.
Edge is expected to be out of action for several months which means WWE will likely have to change creative plans for Summerslam.
The match at Backlash clocked in at an estimated 44 minutes and 46 seconds.
