He’ll be out for a bit. There are all kinds of injuries that can take place in wrestling and some of them can be rather serious. Some can lead to a wrestler needing a good bit of recovery time and possibly even surgery. Unfortunately another WWE Superstar has been injured and now we know just how bad things are, which has included having to go under the knife.

Erik is a talented star and he’s on a good team. Check out what he can do in the ring:

Opinion: That is something you never want to see as Erik is likely going to be out of action for a long time. Erik is someone who has shown that he can do some rather good things in the ring and hopefully he and Ivar can have a nice reunion when he can return to wrestling. For now though, it is good to see that he is getting healed up as the biggest problem has already been solved.

What do you think of Erik/ What should he do when he returns to the ring? Let us know in the comments below.
