– Big Cass could be set for his second ACL surgery in under a year.
Mike Johnson said last week on PWInsider.com’s “Elite Audio” that Cass was being evaluated to determine if he needs to undergo ACL surgery on his right knee again. If that’s the case, he would miss six or more months.
Johnson, however, reports today that Cass is on the road this week with WWE. He adds that whatever potential injuries Cass has, it’s not preventing him from traveling.
Cass’ last surgery saw him sidelined for eight months. He returned on the April 17th episode of SmackDown LIVE, during which he was launched into a feud with Daniel Bryan. He apparently picked up his latest injury during WWE’s recent European tour.
Rumors started circulating when he showed visible discomfort and frustration after a match in Newcastle, England on May 17, but it was presumed to be a work when the same thing happened in Amsterdam two days later. Now, it would appear the injury is legit, though Dave Meltzer was unsure in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
