When Can WWE Expect Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt & Others To Return To Raw & PPV? What Is Viral Meningitis? How Long Is Someone Usually Affected?

When can WWE expect Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt and the other impacted superstars to return to Raw and future PPVs?

In light of the unprecedented MAJOR card changes to WWE’s Raw branded Tables Ladders and Chairs 2017 (TLC 2017) PPV to night, and to the upcoming few Monday Night Raws, due to viral meningitis, we thought we’d share some information about the illness. Based on the information below, it quite conceivable that only one of the sidelined superstars may have actual viral meningitis while the others (1) may have the virus that caused patient zero to get the viral meningitis (see below for the usual suspects) or (2) have no symptoms, but are being sent as a precautionary measure due to their close association with patient zero.

This viral meningitis scare has sidelines Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt from TLC 2017 replacing them with Kurt Angle and AJ Styles respectively.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has some information on their website concerning viral meningitis.

What Is Viral Meningitis?

Viral meningitis is the most common type of meningitis.

It is an inflammation of the tissue that covers the brain and spinal cord.

Less severe than bacterial meningitis where most people get better without treatment.

Who Is At Risk & How Does Viral Meningitis Spread?

Adults with weakened immune systems are at higher risk of contracting viral meningitis.

Close contact with someone who has meningitis can make the other person sick with the virus that caused the meningitis.

Only a small number of people who get infected with the viruses that cause meningitis will actually develop viral meningitis.

What Viruses Can Cause Viral Meningitis?

– Non-polio enteroviruses
– Mumps virus
– Herpes viruses
– Measles virus
– Influenza virus
– Arboviruses (spread through mosquitoes and other insects)
– Lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus

What Are The Common Signs of Viral Meningitis?

– Fever
– Headache
– Stiff neck
– Sensitivity to bright light
– Sleepiness or trouble waking up from sleep
– Nausea
– Vomiting
– Lack of appetite
– Lethargy

Who Quickly Can Someone Heal from Meningitis?

Most adults get better in one to one and half weeks (7 to 10 days).

What About Bacterial Meningitis?

Bacterial meningitis is usually severe and can cause brain damage, hearing loss or learning disabilities.

The germs that cause bacterial meningitis are also associated with sepsis. Sepsis is the body’s severe response to infection that can cause tissue damage, organ failure and death.
