The Miz Intends To Be On WWE Raw Every Week Despite Injury
He reportedly tore his ACL at WrestleMania Backlash
The Miz says he does not know how long his injury will keep him out of action for, but intends to be on WWE television every week during his rehabilitation.
The 'A-Lister' reported suffered a torn ACL during his Lumberjack Match with Damian Priest at WrestleMania Backlash, but has featured on WWE Raw in the last two weeks, albeit he hasn't wrestled.
There have been reports that The Miz could miss up to nine months but the man himself says those rumours are wrong, but admitted he will be out of action for 'a little bit of time'.
Speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, The Miz said: "I love reading reports about my injury. It’s amazing. It’s all usually wrong. I was reading stuff about me like, ‘What? Where are they finding this information?’ I hadn’t even released anything that I was even injured. As far as I’m concerned, everyone keeps asking me how I’m feeling, and I feel like a million bucks—and I’m going to be on WWE TV every week like I always am.
“I’ll be out for a little bit of time. I’ve seen that I’ll be out nine months. I don’t plan on being out nine months. I was on TV last Monday, and I’m going to be on TV every week.
“We always tell children not to try what we do at home because it’s a very dangerous sport, and I’m a person that had never been injured in a WWE ring for my entire career. I had a match, and did I get injured? Yes, the answer is yes, I did get injured.
"How long will I be out? To be completely honest, I don’t even know that. I’m just working on physical therapy, getting everything back to 100% so I can give the audience exactly what they want."
