That could be worse. There are all kinds of injuries in wrestling and one of the worst parts is figuring out just how long someone is going to be out of the ring. Sometimes these are a lot worse than others, but that waiting period can be one of the worst parts. Thankfully some injuries are not as bad as others and now we know just how long an injured WWE star will be gone.

MVP had knee surgery this week and has posted an upgrade to Instagram, saying he will be out of action for 4-6 weeks. In the update, MVP also revealed that he had been suffering from a pair of Meniscus tears since February and while he was out of action from a rib injury suffered on Monday Night Raw, he had his knee fixed as well. MVP has wrestled on occasion since his injury, with his most recent match taking place on the September 6 Monday Night Raw.

It will be nice to have him back. Check out the update and what MVP has been up to as of late:

Bobby Lashley berates MVP and demolishes the VIP Lounge: Raw, July 12, 2021

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: It will be nice to have MVP back on his healthy feet as he really is one of the better things about Monday Night Raw as of late. He is one of the best talkers around and can still wrestle a completely fine match. His pairing with Bobby Lashley has been a smash hit and I could go for seeing more of them going forward, especially now that his knee is healed up.

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