That’s even longer. Injuries are one of the worst things to happen to a wrestler as they can change all kinds of plans at the drop of a hat. Injuries can be built up over time and there is little way to know how long someone is going to be out of action. What matters most is getting wrestlers back to full health and now we have a better idea of how long that is going to take for a wrestling legend.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Ouch: Gunther Slams WWE Hall Of Famer, Says He Was “Not A Professional Wrestler”

Earlier this week, WWE Hall Of Famer Rey Mysterio revealed that he had undergone knee surgery. Earlier reports stated that Mysterio’s surgery was to repair a torn meniscus and that he would be out from 6-8 weeks. However, this week on Smackdown, it was announced that Mysterio would be out for “several” months. There was no return date mentioned.

Mysterio is a star. Check out what he has done in WWE:

Opinion: That is worse than the original diagnosis and hopefully it isn’t accurate. At the very least, it would be nice to have Mysterio return in the Royal Rumble in January, as it would make for a heck of a moment, especially if he can get his hands on Santos Escobar, the man who was credited with causing the injury. For now though, what matters is getting Mysterio back in the ring, and that might take longer than expected.

What do you think of Mysterio’s recent time in WWE? Who should he face in his final match? Let us know in the comments below.
