An MRI of Big Cass‘ knee shows that he has a possible tear that will require surgery.
The WWE released an official update on the superstar’s left knee injury, which he suffered during a street fight with Enzo Amore on the August 22 episode of RAW.
“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’s physician Dr. Chris Robinson said to the company.
Cass, who made his main-roster debut April 4, 2016 alongside Amore, will undergo surgery that will have him out for at least nine months, Robinson told WWE.
“It’s hard to tell what the extent of the injury is, but we’re going to send him to get an MRI tomorrow and figure that out,” he said.
He suffered the injury during a street fight the night after SummerSlam when Amore lowred the rope, sending him falling to the outside of the ring and hard to the gound with his knee taking the brunt of it.
Cass was able to complete a majority of the match before the ref called a countout as doctors ran to his side.
The WWE released a video of him being helped back to the locker room and reappearing with crutches after the match.
