WWE Superstar Could Be Out Of Action With Injury Suffered At Wrestlmania Backlash
The Miz could be out of action for some time, due to torn ACL
Druing Sunday’s WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view, Mike 'The MIz' Mizanin faced Damian Priest in a Lumberjack match, with zombies acting as lumberjacks around the ring to help tie in, advertise and promote Batista's new movie, 'Army Of The Dead'. It will more than likely go down as one of the worst matches in WWE history (This writer certainly thinks so!), and even the man himself Batista tried to distance himself from the move on social media with the following tweet;
Wtf you telling me?!! You think I booked a bunch of fucking zombies. I’m on a damn plane! Shouldn’t you be tweeting Vince?! ????????♂️ https://t.co/Eb8wNdijRI— The Artist Formerly Known as Super Duper Dave (@DaveBautista) May 17, 2021
The Miz would then be absent from monday night's episode of Raw, where John Morrison implied that The Miz was certainly gone with the following quote 'The Miz might never be the same. Im dedicating tonight's match to his memory. Miz, I love you bro, I hope wherever you are, its a better place'
However, the real reason that The Miz didn't make an appearence, was that he was legitimately hurt during the bout when Damian Priest landed on his leg awkwardly. Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer reported on it during the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, saying. "He tore his ACL, but we don't know the severity of the tear. The last I heard is they hoped it might be a partial tear so that might not be that serious. If it's a full tear, that's surgery and probably, you know seven, eight, nine months. At 40, that's not the best thing in the world. He'll come back from it, I'm sure he will, but that's a lot of time off."
The Miz does seem to be in high spirits currently however. He has been active on his social media promoting the show 'Miz and Mrs', and he had sent out the following tweet after his 'ordeal'

Heres hoping that Miz has a quick recovery, and that he isn't out of action for too long.
