KALISTO CONFIRMS INJURY
WWE Superstar Kalisto uploaded a video to his personal “Lucha Family” YouTube channel to discuss his health and status at the current time.
He confirmed that he is still out of action with an injury. He also confirmed when that injury happened, at a December 30th WWE live event in Los Angeles.
The former Cruiserweight Champion said;
“I wanted to take this moment because I’m seeing a lot of fans tweeting at me, messaging me, [asking] where am I, am I still with WWE?. The answer is yes, but unfortunately I got hurt back on December 31 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. So I ended up having an AC [joint] separation in my shoulder, and some ligament tear. Thank God no surgery, but it’s a longer recovery and I’m taking my time to come back, and I want to come back 100%. Every time I’ve watched SmackDown or RAW I just want to get in there so bad, but I know my boys are doing great.”
