Update On WWE Raw Superstar Kevin Owens' Double Knee Surgery

Timescale for a return revealed...

Yesterday it was revealed that WWE Raw Superstar Kevin Owens had undergone a successful double knee surgery, with the former Universal Champion posting a rather shocking image to his Twitter feed where both of his legs were bandaged all the way up.

The news of the injury was broken by WWE.com who didn't provide a timescale on Kevin's return to the ring. Today, however, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has been able to provide an update on KO's injury, saying on Wrestling Observer Radio that it was worse than originally suspected and that he should be back in a WWE ring around the beginning of March 2019.

The timescale provided by Meltzer ties into the one heavily reported for Sami Zayn, who injured both of his rotator cuffs earlier this year and is expected to be back around WrestleMania season. This writer hopes the pair return at the same time to tackle one of the top babyfaces on WWE Raw.

Obviously, you never want to see any wrestler sustain an injury, but Owens' couldn't have happened at a better time. Recently, a graphic was posted online that showed KO has lost the joint most matches in WWE this year - tied with Baron Corbin on 74.

The weeks before the injury proved to be a bit strange for Kevin Owens, as a storyline with Braun Strowman that seemingly left him dead in the water led to another that looked like giving him a new lease of life. However, the free rein afforded to him by GM Corbin culminated in a short feud with Bobby Lashley which was used to write him off television.

Everyone at Cultaholic wishes KO, and Sami for that matter, a very speedy recovery indeed.
