Hopefully it isn’t too bad. There are all kinds of reasons for a wrestler to miss time from television and some of them are a lot more serious than others. One of the biggest problems can involve getting injured, as you will occasionally see someone have to go on the shelf for a little while. That seems to be the case again on Monday Night Raw, as a star is going to be missing for a little while.

Earlier this week, WWE reported that MVP would be out of action due to a broken rib at the hands of Big E. According to F4W Online, MVP underwent knee surgery this week to repair an injury which took place during a match earlier this year. There is no word on how long he will be out of action or if he will be returning to the ring when he returns to television. MVP has been serving as Bobby Lashley’s manager.

MVP has been a heck of an addition to Lashley. Check out what the two have done together:

MVP makes an offer to Bobby Lashley: Raw, May 11, 2020

The New Day vs. Bobby Lashley & MVP: Raw, July 5, 2021

Bobby Lashley and MVP issue a warning for Goldberg and his son: Raw, Aug. 9, 2021

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that seems like it had to be done and there was no way around it. At the end of the day, a serious knee injury is not something that is going to heal up on its own so while this is not good, at least it will be taken care of once and for all. MVP and Lashley have been a heck of a team and it would be nice to see them back together again, albeit with MVP healthy.

What do you think of MVP and Lashley? What should MVP do when he gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
