After being dominated (pun intended) and viciously attacked by Bobby Lashley this past Monday on RAW, the following day it was reported that the attack on Kevin Owens was done to write him off of television as he will be having a minor knee surgery (see that story here).
While it was stated that ‘The Prize Fighter’ was not expected to miss much time due to the procedure, exact details on his injury and return were not known. Today, another report states that Owens may in fact be out for an extended period of time.
According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Owens’ knee injury is expected to keep him out for four months and depending on the severity, could be up to eight months. Meltzer states that the extent of the injury will not be known until the actual surgery takes place, but the hope is that major surgery can be avoided and his knee just needs to be “cleaned up”.
Currently, there’s no word as of yet on when Owens will be going under the knife, however The Chairshot will provide further updates on KO’s surgery, recovery and return as they become available.
