Zack Ryder posts injury update, won't need surgery


Zack Ryder has some good news after suffering a knee injury prior to Raw on Monday.

Ryder posted on Twitter earlier this afternoon that no surgery would be needed.

“Got some good news this morning...MCL/ACL/Calf muscle strains...nothing completely surgery will be needed” he said. “Thanks to everyone who reached out. It’s time for #Raw to get #Zacked!”

Ryder suffered the knee injury during a match on Main Event against Mike Kanellis, his first appearance on Raw since being drafted from SmackDown in the Superstar Shakeup. He finshed the match, pinning Kanellis. Since he had to travel to Orlando to get an MRI done on the knee the following day, Ryder will miss the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia on Friday. He was likely to be a part of the 50 man Royal Rumble bout.

Ryder missed six months of action back in December of 2016 when he suffered a ruptured patellar tendon during a battle royal on SmackDown.
