Injuries happen far too often in the world of professional wrestling, and one of SmackDown Live’s finest recently underwent surgery.
Sin Cara underwent surgery on his right knee this week, and WWE has confirmed that scar tissue was found in his knee, which hindered the performance of his joint.
At this point there is no timetable for his return, but WWE posted the following announcement confirming the surgery:
“Sin Cara underwent surgery on his right knee last night, the SmackDown LIVE Superstar revealed on social media.
This past weekend, the masked luchador sensed something was wrong with his knee and had it evaluated by physicians. During the checkup, the medical personnel found scar tissue that hindered the performance of his joint and surgically removed it.
The International Sensation tweeted a photo, posing next to Dr. Jeffrey Dugas, after the procedure was performed at the Andrew Sport Medicine & Orthopaedic Center in Birmingham, Ala.
There is no timetable for when the Mexican Luchador will return to the ring, but he has already posted a photo of his first day of rehabilitation. WWE.com wishes Sin Cara a speedy recovery.”
Hoy hicimos con el doctor Jeffrey Dugas unos pequeños ajustes en mi rodilla para volver con todo a mi terreno 🤼♂️. El cuerpo es sabio y te indica cuando parar ✋️. Pero también tiene memoria y sabe cuando volver 👊. pic.twitter.com/7yeYAWPHOs
