There is some good news to report. On Tuesday, we noted that Zack Ryder was injured during a match that was taped for WWE Main Event. Ryder noted that he would be getting an MRI done to figure out how severe the injury is and to see if this will cause him to miss time from the ring.
Ryder shared some good news on Wednesday. It turns out that the injury is not as serious as originally feared. On Twitter, he noted that it was an MCL/ACL calf muscle strain and nothing was completely torn. That means that he will not need to get surgery.
He wrote, “Got some good news this morning…MCL/ACL/Calf muscle strains…nothing completely torn…no surgery will be needed. Thanks to everyone who reached out. It’s time for #Raw to get #Zacked!”

This is great to hear. My guess is that WWE will keep him off shows for a short period of time as a precaution but he will not be out of action for several months as originally feared.
