Despite being injured in a car accident last week, Bray Wyatt is already back in the ring.
“The Eater of Worlds” returned one week after the accident took place at last night’s WWE live event at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Wyatt and “Woken” Matt Hardy retained the Raw Tag Team Championship in a Triple Threat Match against The B-Team (Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel) and Titus Worldwide (Apollo Crews and Titus O’Neil).

Relatively short (or felt like it), but the Deleters of Worlds retained. Bray DID see action. Outwardly looks fine and was moving pretty well. A delightful defense. #WWEPhilly pic.twitter.com/eNZZBRt38t

Dave Meltzer reported in this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Wyatt was scheduled to be evaluated yesterday to see whether or not he’d be able to return to action.
WWE announced last Monday that Wyatt suffered “multiple injuries” in a car accident on June 29 while traveling to the airport for that weekend’s house shows. The report from the accident noted that Wyatt was cited for “careless driving due to his failure to operate his vehicle in a careful and prudent manner.” Three cars were involved, with Wyatt smashing into the car in front of him and forcing that driver to veer left and hit another vehicle.
Wyatt got released from Tampa General Hospital after being transported there by ambulance but wasn’t on Raw this week. He’ll be teaming with Hardy at WWE Extreme Rules on July 15 as they defend the Raw Tag Team Championship against Dallas and Axel.
