Sin Cara cleared to return after suffering knee injury


After suffering a knee injury at SmackDown's house show in Spain on Sunday, Sin Cara has been cleared to return to the ring.

Our Dave Meltzer notes that Sin Cara was medically cleared today. Sin Cara, who has been involved in a feud with Baron Corbin on television, suffered the injury in a match against Corbin and Sami Zayn for the United States Championship.

Sin Cara was scheduled to be evaluated prior to yesterday's house show in Lisbon, Portugal but ended up not wrestling on the event. He tweeted out a message apologizing to the fans in Lisbon for missing the show and wrote that he hopes to see them soon. The US title match was changed to Corbin vs. Zayn vs. Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler, with Corbin retaining after stealing the pin from Roode.

The earliest Sin Cara could return to action is at SmackDown in Manchester, England tonight, which has Jinder Mahal vs. AJ Styles for the WWE Championship, The Usos vs. Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable for the SmackDown tag titles, and Becky Lynch vs. James Ellsworth scheduled.
