We're told Evan Bourne's recovery for the Lisfranc midfoot fracture he suffered last March is going slower than expected. Both he and WWE are starting to get frustrated.
As has been well-documented, Bourne was on "very thin" ice prior to the injury as he had back-to-back Wellness Policy failures for testing positive for synthetic marijuana. In fact, we're told from a high-ranking source he tested positive for another banned substance in addition to the synthetic marijuana.
Prior to the Wellness issues and injury, Bourne was set to be one of the centerpieces of a new show the company is planning to develop around cruiserweights. Given his slower recovery, he's nervous he won't be part of it at all. Even worse, we're told from people close to Bourne he's concerned about the stability of his job when he is able to return.
