WrestleMania 36 didn’t quite go according to plans for WWE Superstar Jimmy Uso. During a Triple Threat Ladder Match, he ended up with a torn ACL. Since then, the Usos have been absent from the ring.

Recently, on an episode of Table Talk with D-Von Dudley, Uso provided an insight into his injury and reflected on a possible return.

According to him, getting hurt while jumping from a ladder was rather infuriating. Considering all the crazy stunts that Superstars pull in the ring, a 4ft jump is the last way one would like to get injured.

“I tore my ACL within the first minute. I had no idea! All I knew was I went down and I jumped off the ladder from 4 feet. I landed on the mat, and that’s how I blew my ACL. Out of all the crazy things we have done in the past decade in WWE, I get hurt from falling 4 feet off a ladder. Man, I was pissed!”

Following the injury, he absolutely did not appreciate being at home. While yes, he urgently needed the rest, it’s not easy for a determined WWE Superstar to stay away from the ring.

“It’s hard when you get home. You are moving so much that it’s hard to turn off; it’s just hard. My wife [Naomi] tells me I need to stop worrying and stop watching SmackDown or RAW and just turn it off. So, I’ve been trying to do that and just hang out.”

On the positive side, his rehabilitation process is progressing at an admirable rate. However, while Jimmy Uso hopes to be back by the end of 2020, it seems as though his return will be around January 2021.

I don’t like any of it, so to sit there and have to go under with the whole gown on having surgery – yeah, I tore the ACL and now we’re looking at January. Hopefully we’re back and ready to roll.”
