MVP suffered broken ribs in WWE’s storyline at the hands of Randy Orton. An RKO outta nowhere was blamed for MVP’s injury, but that wasn’t the real culprit. He finally had that knee surgery he was putting off and now he has an update for fans.

While posting a video from his hospital bed, MVP dropped a post on Instagram to catch everyone up on his current condition. He will be out of action for four to six weeks at this point which is a very short hiatus after surgery.

He captioned the video with: “Greetings from Birmingham” and proceeded to explain a bit about his current situation.

“There were some reports going around that I had successful knee surgery. Those reports were wrong, erroneous, mistaken, as usual. I’m having knee surgery, today. As some of you might night, a couple of weeks ago, I took a viscous RKO from Randy Orton on the floor, one I certainly didn’t deserve. As a result, I suffered a ‘rib injury’ [wink]. I figured, while I recover from this ‘rib injury,’ I would get my knee fixed, the one that has had me hobbled since February when I tore a meniscus and then two weeks later got a second meniscus tear. Since then, I’ve been hobbling. People thought the cane was cool and dope, but it was necessary.”


“The injury has been real. I’m excited to finally get it fixed so I can get back in the ring and actually wrestle and not be hobbled. I appreciate the well wishes and positive energy. We’re going to get through this simply arthroscopic surgery and hopefully I’ll be back on Monday Night Raw in four to six weeks.”

A report came out eariler this week that he already went under the knife. MVP was quick to shut that down, but he did finally have his operation. Now MVP can set his sights on an in-ring return. It will be interesting to see how WWE books Bobby Lashley in the meantime.
