John Yurnet suffered a knee injury during his match against Mustafa Ali on this week’s episode of WWE 205 Live. The injury was bad as it severely limited Yurnet as we covered it after it happened at this link.
While the injury occurred in a WWE ring during a WWE show, they’re not covering his medical expenses. This has prompted a friend of Yurnet to open a GoFundMe account to help raise $10,000 to cover the cost of getting his knee fixed.
The reason WWE is not covering the medical bills is because Yurnet is not under contract with the company. WWE only handles in-ring injuries for wrestlers under contract to them.
