Why R-Truth Wasn’t on Raw, WWE Confirms Bourne’s Injury

Nick Paglino

PWInsider.com is reporting that R-Truth was not on Raw tonight because he is prohibited from entering Canada due to a prior offense on his criminal record. This is not the first time Truth has not been allowed to travel to Canada, so it was known before the taping that he would not be in attendance. He is still a part of Team Raw for the Bragging Rights PPV.

WWE.com has confirmed that Evan Bourne does indeed have a torn rotator cuff and will require surgery. The report attributes the injury to the attack Bourne suffered at the hands of CM Punk on Raw last week, however that was the story line reason why Bourne was written off TV. The report notes that Bourne will miss 4 months of action.
