Cesaro confirmed in an interview with WWE.com that he is dealing with a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder and will need to undergo surgery. He noted he’s been trying to work through it for over two months and when he went in for an MRI last week, he had no idea that it was an injury that would require surgery.
I knew something was wrong [for a while], but I thought that it was just sprained or something like that. So, I iced it and had it looked at. I was like, “Oh, I have range of motion” and didn’t necessarily have too much of a loss of strength, so I knew something got hurt, but I didn’t think it was injured, if that makes sense. I kept working out and working [in the ring] obviously, and it kept getting better, but there was still something lingering. Then I thought, “Maybe if I were to know exactly what it is, it will be easier to rehab and get it better” … and then I found out it’s a complete tear. [Laughs] So, no matter how much rehab I do, it will not reattach itself to the bone, unfortunately.
Surgery is actually scheduled for today and he’s currently set to be out four to six months, depending on how rehabilitation goes. You can read the interview by dot com in its entirety at this link.
The injury comes after Jim Ross broke the news on his verified Twitter account on Sunday night. We made our initial post here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com.
