That doesn’t sound good. You never know when an injury is going to strike a wrestler, but you also never know how long one of them is going to keep someone out. There are all kinds of horrible injuries, but there are some which are a lot worse than others. Some of the worst possible are the ones that keep coming back and that might be the case with a big name WWE star.
Back in 2017, Jinder Mahal shocked the wrestling world by becoming the new WWE Champion. His reign would go on for six months and not be the most well received, mainly due to Mahal not being all that thrilling of a star. Eventually Mahal would have to go on the shelf for the better part of a year due to knee surgery, which was followed by a recent second operation. Now we know a bit more about it.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Mahal’s most recent surgery was more serious than originally thought. It is not clear what was done but Mahal will be out of action for the foreseeable future. Mahal announced his surgery earlier this month and called it a bump in the road. This comes after Mahal wrestled only three matches since his comeback, with only one taking place on Monday Night Raw.
Mahal wasn’t back long. Check out his work both before and after his surgery:
Opinion: I know Mahal isn’t the most popular star in the world but there is nothing good about someone working so hard to come back from an injury and then getting hurt all over again. That shouldn’t happen to anyone and I never want to see it happen. Hopefully he can get back in the ring sooner than later and maybe with something different as far as presentation goes.
What do you think of Mahal? Will he ever be World Champion again? Let us know in the comments below.
