Former Impact Wrestling wrestler Andrew Everett announced via social media that he will be taking time off for a meniscus injury. “I will be finishing up my bookings through March, but after that, I’m again being forced to take time off.” Everett wrote while noting that he suffered the injury during a CWF Mid-Atlantic match with Trevor Lee. “…I had slightly torn my MCL, as well as my meniscus. The MCL has healed, the meniscus cannot. For the months following, you will notice that I’ve been wearing a brace on my left knee when wrestling. It’s been there to keep my knee from locking up, and giving out mid-match. Unfortunately, it can only do so much.”
Powell’s POV: Everett went on to write that he will need to undergo knee surgery (read his full post below). He also noted that “the financials are very sketchy (thanks, sweet health care system) and it might take longer to get things together.” It’s obviously disheartening on multiple levels and I certainly wish him the best in his recovery.
Heads still up, now I gotta keep it that way. 😼 pic.twitter.com/OQk2PfkItO
