News has come out of Santa Clara, California, that with just about an hour to go until the beginning of WrestleMania 31, a main event superstar has suffered an injury. As of now, there is no word on his status for his match, but Bray Wyatt may end up having to deal with a big injury in his huge match against The Undertaker.
According to PW Insider, Bray Wyatt did indeed get injured early on Sunday as he was working out in the ring to prepare for his match with The Undertaker. Trainers entered the ring to check on him and see what might have been wrong.
After a little while, Wyatt was not just helped to the back, but he was actually taken on a cart to the backstage area of Levi’s Stadium. Early reports are that he sprained his ankle.
This could end up being huge, as Wyatt is involved in one of the biggest matches at WrestleMania 31, and it’s the first match for Undertaker in a year. Some actually think this could be the final match for the “Dead Man,” and either way, he would want it to be something special.
It’s also a huge match for Wyatt, as a good showing could shoot him into the main event and title picture. A victory over Undertaker, and he could be in line for a title feud and possible run soon.

Wyatt did an interview with Wrestling Inc. where he spoke of his match against The Undertaker at WrestleMania 31, and how it’s actually his “dream match from early on in his career.” This match is huge to both men, and they will want to make sure it is done perfectly from start to pinfall.
In that same interview, Bray Wyatt said that he doesn’t feel any pressure for the match, but it’s a lot more anticipation than anything. He never expected Undertaker to come back after last year’s loss to Brock Lesnar, but he’s glad he did.
For now, there is still not much info on how severe the ankle sprain is for Bray Wyatt, and many expect him to tape it up tight and adrenaline may make up for it. His match against The Undertaker is one of the key matches on the WrestleMania 31 card, and it needs to go off without a hitch.
