Report: WWE Superstar Ivar May Need Surgery

He could spend some time on the sidelines...

Ivar of The Viking Raiders suffered an injury on this week's edition of Monday Night Raw during an eight-man tag team match against The Hurt Business. The former Raw Tag Team Champion went for a Tope Suicida onto three opponents at ringside but immediately threw up the "X" signal after the move. 

Ivar was subsequently pulled from the match and WWE later announced he suffered a cervical injury and was taken to a local hospital as a precaution. The Viking Raider is expected to make a full recovery.

How long Ivar will spend on the sidelines is currently unknown but Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio the WWE Superstar suffered a "significant injury" and may need to undergo surgery. 

Meltzer said: "Nothing's for sure but it has not been determined whether or not he will need surgery. But it's a significant injury. Once you say that it tells you it's not just like a stinger where you're gonna come back in two weeks. It's probably a lot worse than that. It's not determined yet but absolutely as of today it's a possibility."
