WWE confirms Erick Rowan injury suffered at SummerSlam, Rowan set for surgery this week

WWE.com has confirmed earlier reports that Erick Rowan has suffered a torn right biceps injury and will be out of action for some time as a result.

The injury was made public in new reports by PWInsider and F4WOnline on Tuesday, citing the injury took place at SummerSlam. WWE did not address when the injury took place.

As reported earlier, a torn bicep injury normally requires four to six months of recovery time. WWE confirmed that Rowan will be undergoing surgery later this week.

Rowan was one half of the Smackdown Tag Team Champions along with Luke Harper as The Bludgeon Brothers since April. The team lost the titles to New Day last night on Smackdown Live during a No Disqualification main event.
