Edge suffered torn triceps while taping WWE Backlash match


Adam Copeland suffered a torn triceps on June 7 when filming his match with Randy Orton that will take place on tonight's Backlash show.

The injury, like the result of the match, was kept quiet throughout WWE but reported it today and others in WWE have confirmed that as well.

The match itself reportedly was taped for 35 minutes, but it is not clear how the match will be edited.

The rest of tonight's show other than Edge vs. Orton was to take place today in Orlando at the Performance Center.

A torn triceps is usually an injury that requires about eight months or so of recovery time and surgery. Obviously because WWE did not want out that the match was taped, that when Edge and Orton were doing media, they couldn't talk about the injury. The injury, whether he will undergo surgery and the time frame of his return are likely to be talked about over the next few days after the match airs.
