- The wrestler was injured during his Lumberjack match against Damian Priest.
- In the absence of more tests, it has not been confirmed if the break is total or partial.
The Miz would have suffered his first major injury in WWE. The wrestler would have torn the anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees during his match against Damian Priest at WWE WrestleMania Backlash, journalist Dave Meltzer has confirmed in the Wrestling Observer. This would be The Miz’s first serious injury in his career.
At the moment, it is not known if the injury is total or partial, in the absence of more tests that will be carried out in the next few hours. The wrestler was not present in the last WWE Monday Night Raw program after he lost the fight and was ‘swallowed’ by the lumberjacks present outside the ring, characterized as zombies, to be ‘eaten’ alive last Sunday.

The moment of the injury would have been after a jump from the third rope from Priest to The Miz. After jumping there, the Caribbean fighter fell awkwardly on the knee of the fighter , who was selling throughout the fight that he had hurt his knee. Apparently, that damage was legitimate.
There is no estimated time of loss for the fighter in the absence of the medical tests that must be done. The estimated time of sick leave in these cases is usually around 7 to 9 months , which could be longer depending on the established recovery. In the next few hours we could have more news about it.
