Mysterio & Ziggler Battling Injuries, WWE Holding Major Tryout
— With WWE in the West Coast for SummerSlam this week, company officials are holding a three day series of tryouts for potential wrestlers in California. WWE will reportedly be looking at wrestlers they’ve used as extras in the past, as well as others that have been invited.
— Both Rey Mysterio and Dolph Ziggler are currently battling injuries.
Ziggler suffered a abdominal muscle at Friday’s Raw live event in Salt Lake City, Utah. The same night, Mysterio suffered a knee injury, leading to the early stoppage of a bout with Alberto Del Rio. He limped to the back afterward.
Mysterio participated in an injury angle at last night’s Raw live event in Fresno, California as he was attacked by Alberto Del Rio and R-Truth prior to his match with the second generation Mexican wrestler. Del Rio put the cross arm-breaker on Mysterio, and was subsequently assisted to the back by personnel. Meanwhile. Ziggler worked lightly during his match against Alex Riley as there was much stalling.
Both wrestlers are expected to work around their respective injuries and rest up as much as they can this week in Los Angeles leading into next Sunday’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event.
