Mysterio Injury Update; Is Surgery Needed?, Ziggler Injured, More
- To update the news of Rey Mysterio working through a knee injury, Mysterio tweeted on Wednesday night that he underwent an MRI on the knee yesterday – which is not true. Mysterio actually underwent on MRI last week – and Rey mentioning the MRI this week was a way to continue the reality-based storyline from Monday’s RAW where Rey suffered an injury at the hands of Alberto Del Rio.
According to a WWE source Rey Mysterio’s latest knee injury will probably not require surgery – but he will take time away from the ring instead and undergo physical rehabilitation to heal the knee.
– WWE’s On Demand cable channel will be debuting a new Legends Roundtable next Monday featuring wrestling’s biggest outdoor events.
– WWE United States Champion Dolph Ziggler wrote on Twitter that he is currently suffering from a pulled groin.
Ziggler defeated Alex Riley in a dark match prior to Sunday’s SummerSlam pay-per-view, but did not wrestle on RAW. He and Vickie Guerrero did commentary during the Jack Swagger vs. Alex Riley match.
