Big Cass was injured on Monday’s episode of WWE RAW during his Brooklyn Street Fight with Enzo Amore on RAW last night. Cass charged at Enzo while he was leaning on the ropes. Enzo ducked and Cass went tumbling out of the ring and landed awkwardly on his leg. The match was then stopped because Big Cass was unable to continue.
Big Cass underwent an MRI today and WWE has released the following update:
AUG. 22 UPDATE: An initial MRI of Big Cass’ left knee shows that he will require surgery.
“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.
The seven-footer will be undergoing surgery this week to repair the damage, which will be the start of a long road back to the squared circle.
“A typical ACL tear takes about nine months [to recover from],” Robinson said.
Big Cass suffered the injury to his left knee during the Brooklyn Street Fight against Enzo Amore on Raw. The injury occurred after Amore dodged a big boot by pulling down the top rope, sending Cass to the floor in the process.
“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,” said WWE ringside physician Dr. Chris Robinson.
