WWE.com has reported that the initial diagnosis of Ken Kennedyâ<80><99>s triceps tear was incorrect. Dr. James Andrews examined Kennedy today and discovered that the muscle was not torn off the bone and the injury will NOT require surgery as previously expected.
Kennedy’s triceps will be vulnerable to injury and the arm remains badly swollen.â<80> He then went on to say, â<80><9c>Iâ<80><99>d expect him to be out of action for about six to eight weeks.â<80>
The injury will keep the superstar out for several weeks, but this is a MUCH better scanario than if he had to undergo surgery, which would have required 6-8 months recovery time.
This news is excellent news for Kennedy and WWE, who feared they had lost another big superstar to injury. The Undertaker tore his biceps last week, is having surgery and will miss the same amount of time Kennedy would have missed.
This past week on RAW, WWE booked Kennedy to lose his Money In The Bank contract to Edge when it was assumed he would be out until 2008. There are strong talks about turning Kennedy babyface upon his return.
