WWE.com has published an article confirming Cesaro’s shoulder injury, and is reporting the results of an MRI revealed Cesaro has a torn tendon and a partially torn tendon in his left rotator cuff. Cesaro has been working through the injury for months and was hoping rehab would fix the issue, but he got a call from the doctor notifying him he will need to have surgery. Cesaro will be having the surgery today, and the official timeframe for his return is 4-6 months.
Cesaro had the following to say to WWE.com about the injury:
“I just want to come back as soon as possible. I felt I was building a lot of momentum, and that was all thanks to the fans. I really appreciate all the support I’ve gotten and I’ve felt that the Cesaro Section is finally rising and it’s becoming undeniable … and then, of course, this happens. It’s funny, because I am having the surgery on the day we are in Nashville, Tenn. [for Raw], which is where the Cesaro Section originated. I was actually expecting a big Cesaro Section tonight, and I’m sure they’ll be there. Unfortunately, I’ll be getting out of surgery. [Laughs]
I will be there in spirit with them. I want to keep the momentum up when I return, and I’m sure the Section will still be there.”
