As noted, Neville suffered a broken ankle and broken shinbone on a baseball slide during Monday’s WWE RAW match against Chris Jericho.
Neville underwent more tests in Orlando at the WWE Performance Center on Monday and WWE’s Dr. Chris Amann reports that he will not need surgery. Neville is expected back in 2-3 months. Amann told WWE’s website:
“Neville had some repeat testing done in Orlando today which included X-Rays and a cat scan of his ankle. Upon further review, it has been determined that surgical repair of the ankle would not be necessary. Instead, he will be treated nonoperatively with a cast and crutches. The estimated return for this type of fracture is usually 2 to 3 months.”
