Injured WWE star shares timeline for in-ring return



Jimmy Uso has provided an update on his recovery from surgery.

The former WWE Tag Team Champion suffered a torn ACL while working a Triple Threat Ladder match for the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Titles during Night 1 of WrestleMania 36 earlier this year.

This is where he worked with Kofi Kingston and John Morrison. At the time of him undergoing surgery, the belief was that he would be on the shelf for 6-9 months.

While making an appearance on Table Talk, Jimmy noted that he tore his ACL within the first minute of the match and he did all of his spots on a bum leg. He also noted that his timeline for a return is looking to be sometime in January.

“I don’t like hospitals. I don’t like doctors, I don’t even take medicine. I don’t like any of it, so to sit there and have to go under with a gown on having surgery...Yeah man, I tore the ACL and now we’re looking at January. Hopefully, we’re back and ready to roll. I’m missing everybody, I’m not gonna lie, I’m going crazy over here D, just write me in.”

WWE has kept Jimmy’s brother, Jey, off television as he was last seen on the May 25th episode of SmackDown when he worked the WWE Intercontinental Title Tournament Second Chance Ten Man Battle Royal.
