Please consider these rumors till tonight's Raw.


http://www.lordsofpain.net/news/2005/articles/1105377084.php

If these are true, this is a huge blow for the tag and women's division, tonight will be an interesting Raw.

With all due respect A Fan, the women and tag team divisions on RAW weren't exactly lush and thriving in the first place. In fact, there really is little of either to speak of. The amount of times we have seen Trish/Lita lately is symbolic of that.

I agree, but losing the top women's face and probably the most popular tag wreslter is not something to go "oh well" over, either. Getting rid of the women right now becomes a bigger mistake, because they have to rebuild Victoria/Trish and found a way to get the tag belts off of Eugene/Regal as well.

If in fact Eugene is legitimately injured, I'd look for a "New Year's Resolution Rematch" on RAW tonight. Maybe the heels beat down Eugene before hand, forcing Regal to defend the titles in a handicap match.

But I'd hate knowing that Christian's name would be in the record books with Tyson Tomko as holding the tag titles together.

As for the Women's division, I'm still bitter about the release of Gail Kim, so I don't care. Maybe that could plug Bimbo #47 into the title mix.

Well, Meltzer confirms that Lita has a sprained knee and Eugene dislocated his patella (so much for me assuming the latter was a work).

I guess the women's division goes bye-bye until Lita heals up -- either that, or we get treated to a Stacey/Trish feud.

Rumor apparently has it that Alexis Laree recently went under the knife to get her WWE Diva breasts, so give her some time to heal and for the swelling to go down (and up... ba-dump bump) and hopefully we'll see her on TV soon.

Seems like RVD injured his knee at somepoint too, breaking his five year "injury-free" streak. Not sure what the injury is or how serious it is.

What's the approximate time of recovery for these kinds of injuries?

This just goes to show how dangerous pro wrestling really is. Eugene goes for a seemingly simple dropkick, and look what happens.

After some Googling, it looks as though a dislocated patella takes at least six weeks to recover from. As for the sprained knee, I think I heard J.R. say that she injured her ACL and would be out for months, which might happen if she requires surgery.

There was a tinge of irony that RVD was the guy who didn't want to work Iraq because he wanted rest.

Perhaps its not ironic; perhaps his knee was already messed up.

Australian Rules footballers who do Arterial Cruciate Ligaments have been out for up to a year , some have come back after 6 months. Depends on the work load and fitness base required by wrestlers , but I would assume minimum 3-4 months

I thought Victoria worked with a sprained ACL in 2003-2004. She had that knee brace on for a long time.

Victoria's knee brace is still on, and she hasn't taken mcuh time off, so the injury is still probably there.

There's differing levels of ACL tears, and I believe it's something you can (painfully) work around at some levels, but not always; I remember Jazz being out for a long time due to same injury. It depends on how severe the injury is.

Also, Shawn Michaels worked for about 4-5 months on a torn ACL from March 2004 to Bad Blood. Or possibly longer, since I'm not 100% sure exactly when he had the surgery for it. But he did in fact work with the bad knee for a while.
