WWE Announce Injury To Raw Star

WWE Raw roster on the stage

On Monday Night Raw in Birmingham, Alabama, WWE announced that a current star on the red brand is missing through injury.

On the August 22nd, 2022 edition of Raw, former NXT Champion Johnny Gargano returned to WWE after letting his contract expire at the end of 2021. Many suspected Gargano could eventually join AEW but with the change in management in WWE following Vince McMahon’s retirement, Gargano was one of many stars to return.

Gargano last competed on the 30th of December 2022 at a live event where he teamed with Dexter Lumis to defeat The Miz and Baron Corbin. Now it has been revealed that he might be missing a few more weeks of action after Raw announcers Corey Graves and Kevin Patrick told viewers that Jonny Wrestling is suffering from a grade 2 AC sprain in his shoulder.

Taking to social media, Johnny Gargano referenced the injury and indicated that he hoped to be back for the Royal Rumble at the end of January:

“I injured my shoulder at a live event in Toronto (ironic?), and the medical team is going to protect me from myself for a bit.. but you better believe I’m going to do EVERYTHING I can to get back in that ring so I can be that guy you all know I can be. Just let me in that Rumble!”
