WWE recently announced an injury storyline involving MVP after he received an RKO by Randy Orton during his match against then-WWE Champion Bobby Lashley.
WWE noted MVP suffered a “broken rib and would be out indefinitely.” It was later reported that MVP had knee surgery done.
The WWE star documented his surgery on Thursday via Instagram and also commented on how the previous reports were wrong about him undergoing successful surgery days before it actually happened.
“So there were some reports going around that I had successful knee surgery. Those reports were wrong, erroneous, mistaken, as usual. I’m having knee surgery today [Thursday].”
MVP brought up the storyline rib injury that was done to write him off television. He noted that he figured he would get his knee fixed while he “recovers” from the rib injury. He noted that he tore a meniscus in February and two weeks later got a second meniscus tear.
“The injury all along has been real. I’m excited to finally get it fixed so I can get back in the ring and actually wrestle and not be hobbled around for those who have seen me on TV and live events.”
MVP later added, “I appreciate the well wishes and positive energy. We’re going to get through this simply arthroscopic surgery and hopefully, I’ll be back on Monday Night Raw in four to six weeks.”
