WWE has confirmed Big Cass tore his ACL on Raw, which will require surgery. He will most likely miss nine months of action, putting him back in the ring around May.
Below is WWE's official statement:
"It looks like he has an ACL tear, possibly a medial meniscus tear, but we’re going to wait for the radiologist to evaluate the MRI and give us their full report," WWE ringside physician Dr. Chris Robinson said.
The seven-footer will be undergoing surgery this week to repair the damage, which will be the start of a long road back to the squared circle.
“A typical ACL tear takes about nine months [to recover from],” Robinson said.
