It seems that the list of injured WWE Superstars continues to grow as each week passes, and back in January SmackDown Live star Samir Singh suffered a torn ACL and later underwent surgery in Alabama.

It looks like Samir Singh has a long way to go, as typical recovery time for a torn ACL is 6 to 9 months following surgery.

However, his road to recovery seems to be going well, as he recently posted a video on Twitter and noted that he’s learning to walk again.

One step at a time.

WWE is constantly signing new talent, and the company recently signed several former Impact Wrestling stars including Rockstar Spud, EC3, Mahabali Shera and more.

Now the company has announced that they’ve signed a MMA fighter, as it was confirmed today that Nicolai Salchow has joined the Performance Center.

Salchow is from Dusseldorf, Germany, and he is 6 feet tall, weighs 230 pounds and has trained with former UFC light heavyweight Anthony Johnson and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans.

He holds brown belts in in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and the Brazilian martial art of Luta Livre, and has also won titles in grappling and Thai boxing competitions.

Salchow participated in a round of WWE tryouts last June.
