While it was estimated on Saturday that Roman Reigns would likely be out of action for up to three months, WWE.com is now stating that his recovery time will likely closer to six weeks.
WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann was quoted heavily in the article noting how this hernia differs from traditional sports hernias that Reigns is currently recovering from.
“This is a completely different type of hernia than sports hernia. A sports hernia usually refers to a tear in the lower abdominal wall that attaches to the ligaments. That type of tear typically occurs from repeated activity or sports. Roman had what’s called an inguinal hernia. It can sometimes come from sports, but sometimes people are born with these. It is treated differently than a sports hernia.”
