Rey Mysterio may have finally revealed exactly what’s been keeping him off of the road for so long. It seems like he may have a torn ACL and is actually headed down to the famed surgeon Dr. James Andrew. Mysterio tweeted:
“Good morning!About to C the man, Doc. James Andrews… Things haven’t been good since I stepped back in the ring, possibly Acl tear again!”
“Only thing I can do now is,leave it in GODS hands!”
In most cases, an ACL tear can leave an athlete out of action for anywhere from 8-12 months for a significant tear. A small tear, similar to the one John Cena suffered last year, can sometimes only require 1-3 months of recovery.
