Big Cass scheduled for knee surgery later this week

There isn’t a final diagnosis on the injury suffered by Big Cass during his Brooklyn Street Fight with Enzo Amore last night (Aug. 21) on Raw, but what WWE’s medical team has discovered so far is not good.

In an update on the company’s website, it’s revealed that what doctors have seen thus far from physical exams and a preliminary analysis of the MRI he underwent is enough for them to schedule surgery on the seven-footer’s left knee.

Ringside physician Dr. Chris Robinson is quoted as saying:

"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.”

While Robinson wouldn’t commit to which ligament is damaged or how severely, it sounds like he’s leaning toward it being a tear of the anterior cruciate. In the post he gives a nine month recovery estimate for Cass, using a typical ACL injury as a guide.

We’ll update when we learn more.
