WWE announced on their official website that SmackDown Live superstar Zack Ryder suffered an injury to his left knee when attempting a Rough Ryder during last night’s broadcast and that after the match, Ryder was carried to the trainer’s room and is currently on crutches before he is evaluated further.
WWE’s doctor Chris Robinson commented on Ryder’s injury stating, “We think he injured his kneecap or his patella. We think it popped out and then popped back in, so we’re just going to do an MRI to make sure that there is not cartilage damage or some tendon tearing, stuff like that. Hopefully there’s not and it’ll be a shorter rehab period. If there is, there’s a different road we might have to go down that may take longer to get him to recover.”
