Ryback Has Been Injured, Won’t Compete At WWE Battleground

The curse of the Intercontinental Championship continues.

According to an update from WWE.com, IC Champion Ryback suffered an injury to his right knee on Monday’s Raw and is out of his scheduled title defense against The Big Show and The Miz at Sunday’s Battleground event.

No word yet on how serious the injury is or how long it’ll keep The Big Guy out of action. He’s had a long career of dealing with injuries, from the bronchitis and rib injuries that plagued him during his first week on Tough Enough in 2004 to the broken ankle that removed him from The Nexus in 2010.

We wish The Ryback a speedy recovery.
