Another to the injured list. Injuries can be about as devastating in wrestling as anything else. They can take a wrestler from being on the verge of moving up the card at a rapid pace to sitting on the sidelines for months at a time. The biggest problem with them can often be how you don’t see them coming, with some of them happening over time instead of in one big move. Another one seems to have hit WWE and it’s not good.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Lars Sullivan may be out of action until 2020 with a knee injury. Sullivan recently had an MRI done on the knee and the results could see him requiring six to nine months of recovery time. There is currently no word on what is specifically wrong with his knee or when the injury took place. Sullivan’s most recent match came on the June 10 Monday Night Raw when he defeated the Lucha House Party.
The injury came at a bad time. Check out Sullivan’s levels of dominance:
Opinion: Egads the bad news continues for Sullivan and this one is just bad all around. There isn’t much that can be said when you’re out of action that long after two matches, but maybe this is karma coming back on him after his comments from before he wrestled in WWE. There isn’t much of a good way to spin something like this and hopefully he is back sooner rather than later.
What do you think of Sullivan so far? Can he ever be a big deal? Let us know in the comments below.
