Kingston, seen sporting a knee brace last week, is scheduled to undergo surgery.

According to PWInsider, Kingston met with surgeons today and, given the nature of his injuries, will not undergo surgery to repair his ACL and meniscus tears until at least July. Kingston shared that he has been advised to wait for his tibial fracture to heal and to undergo some physical therapy before surgeons can focus on his knee.


Kingston elaborated that following surgery, his recovery is expected to take approximately ten months. This timeline suggests a return to the ring around May 2025, assuming no further complications. Displaying his characteristic resilience, Kingston expressed his determination to recover fully.

“Not mad. I don’t give a f***. It’s what happens when you wrestle. Just gotta get f**king better.”

In Kingston’s absence, Darby Allin stepped in for the Anarchy In The Arena match. Fans and colleagues alike are sending their best wishes for a speedy recovery, hoping to see Kingston back in action sooner than anticipated.
