Big Cass Out Until 2018
As we saw on last night’s RAW, Big Cass suffered a legit injury during his match with Enzo Amore. Cass took a bad fall over the top rope and landed awkwardly, leading to the match to be stopped. He was set for an MRI today, and WWE has updated his status.
“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,” WWE ringside physician Dr. Chris Robinson said.
“A typical ACL tear takes about nine months [to recover from],” Robinson said.
Here’s hoping Cass has a full and speedy recovery.
