Last night on WWE’s Monday Night Raw, audiences saw Big Cass land horribly on his leg when being thrown out the ring. It was clear immediately that something was wrong, the match being thrown out. Now WWE has confirmed the scale of the injury, suggesting that Big Cass will be injured for up to nine months.
The news comes via WWE.com. WWE ringside physician Dr. Chris Robinson said;
“It looks like he has an ACL tear, possibly a medial meniscus tear, but we’re going to wait for the radiologist to evaluate the MRI and give us their full report,”
“A typical ACL tear takes about nine months [to recover from],”
“It’s hard to tell what the extent of the injury is, but we’re going to send him to get an MRI tomorrow and figure that out,”
The injury occurred during the Monday Night Raw match against Enzo Amore. The match was billed as a Brooklyn Street Fight.
The injury means that Big Cass will likely miss the upcoming Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania 34 events – huge dates in the WWE calendar. It puts his return sometime next May, which would be a stroke of awful luck for the Superstar.
I feel terrible for Big Cass in this situation. Injuries like this can halt careers – in particular for Big Cass who has just turned heel.
It also puts Enzo Amore’s short-term future into question. The Raw Superstar has struggled since splitting from Big Cass. Reports suggest he has a nuclear amount of heat on himself, with rumblings backstage suggesting that Enzo might not remain on the Raw main roster for long.
We wish Big Cass all the best in his recovery and hope to see him again when he’s fit and fighting ready. Who knows, maybe this could be good for his career in the long term?
