World Wrestling Entertainment has confirmed that Batista is injured and will undergo surgery this week. WWE.com writes:
Less than 48 hours after capturing the WWE Championship for the first time in his career, Batista has suffered a completely torn left bicep requiring surgery that will keep him out of action for at least four months.
WWE ran an angle on Raw where Legacy beat down the WWE Champ, injuring his arm. The injury is actually a torn tendon (not a “complete tear”), so Batista will likely be back sooner than 4 months.
With Batista on the sidelines for several months, he will likely drop the WWE title soon, perhaps as early as next week’s 3-hour Raw.
