• RAW Wrestler Reveals Why His WWE Return Was Delayed
Former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal recently returned to WWE programming after he was on the shelf for quite a while, and picked up a couple of wins over Jeff Hardy.
Jinder underwent patella tendon surgery in July 2019 and was originally scheduled to return to the ring in April 2020, but then needed another knee injury, that sidelined him till 2021.
Here’s what Mahal told Beau Hightower in a recent interview:
“So I showed the WWE doctor it’s swollen. He’s like, ‘Oh, we’ll drain it’. I’ve got my knees drained before, so he drains it.
He’s like, ‘Alright, stand up, should be good’. I went to stand up and my knee locked. I was like, ‘Oh no’.
When all the swelling was there, I didn’t notice it but I had a torn piece of articular cartilage, so then I had to have surgery again.
For that surgery, a microfracture of the femur, so then that was a really long recovery again. And here we are.
So that was another 9-10 months.”
