Last week, Zack Ryder suffered a knee injury en route to winning a #1 contendership tag team battle royale on Smackdown! Live. Unfortunately because of the injury, the Hype Bros will of course not be able to challenge for the titles as it now looks like Ryder will be out for as little as 4-6 or 6-9 months. Ryder also just recently posted a picture of his knee after the surgery. Fair warning: it's a bit nasty.
