It’s been just over five months now since WWE NXT Superstar and member of The Undisputed Era, Bobby Fish, suffered a severe knee injury at an NXT Live Event back on March 4th. Fish tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee, requiring him to undergo surgery that would reportedly keep him out of the ring for roughly six months.
Of course, the injury came just weeks before Fish was scheduled to defend the NXT Tag Team Titles along with Kyle O’Reilly in a Triple Threat match that was also the Finals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans on April 7th. With Fish on the shelf, Roderick Strong shockingly turned on his partner Pete Dunne that night, joining The Undisputed Era and essentially replacing Fish as an NXT Tag Team titleholder.
There have been little updates on Bobby Fish’s recovery from surgery since then and as we approach that reported six month mark, many fans have wondered how close to returning he is. Most recently, Fish appeared on NXT TV last week sporting a knee brace, but no longer needed the use of crutches. According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Fish’s return most likely is still a couple of months away as it’s being said he could be cleared in November or December.
