Depends. I tore my groin when I was still playing hockey. I took close to 6 weeks to get back into game shape, and even then it still hurt.
Depending on how bad it is...he could need surgery...and if that is the case...then we are lookin at, close to 4 months...
There's also the matter of partial tear vs. total tear. The groin is a pretty big deal as a lot of your body movements in general revolve around and depend on a healthy groin. If he doesn't take his time to let it heal, it will hurt for freaking ever.
I partially tore my groin in March '03. I took a few weeks off being inactive, but that wasn't enough. Now every time I play a sport after being inactive for awhile (like more than 2 weeks), my groin is sore for a few days. Needless to say, I'm not Edge. I'm sure he's in slightly better shape than me, so he'd probably recover better than most people.
Sid -That is the reason the business wouldn't be any FUN to be in, but there is not one certain reason why the business is the way it is right now. It probably has something to do with the writing, and overexposure of underneath middle card guys like Edge. .Edge and middle card people because that is their only security for being in the business is because they can do a lot of high risk high situation bumps. Anybody can come off the top rope like I did, and I broke my leg.
Sid - The reason I say Edge a couple of times is because I saw him one of those WWE Tough Enough shows, and he was meeting all the guys and girls that were in the show. He starts putting himself over like he is this big star, and goes 'yeah I know you guys are probably looking at me thinking wow here is Edge a big star and this and that. He started saying when I was growing up I was a big fan of Hulk Hogan, and I use to have pictures of him up on my wall, and I thought he was the man. When I come to the WWE I found out what makes a real superstar is their work rate'. That is a phrase that should only be applied to people who are not money drawers like people like [Edge ..]
Sid -The thing is what I would say to some of these guys like Edge is why if their work rate is so great why are there some many cancellations in towns in the WWE? ..
Actually, I'm all kinds of down to hear Tom Zenk's opinion on the matter. Shoot, baby, shoot!
Two hours later they decided to stop at a diner Because they loved the smell of eggs and coffee I just had to smoke a cigarette and wear a hat By the time that they set off again, the sun was starting to set It made the sky look red like a nuclear ray One of them said "what do you want more than anything in this whole wide world Do you want money, do you want sex, or do you want all that success?" I thought about that one myself (Then they came upon the thing)

Because they don't feel like playing in front of sub-2,000 crowds like Zenk & Sidney did. It's good business sense.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
The managers I always liked were the ones that mixed it up a little. Adnon al-Kasie comes to mind in World Class and UWF. I also absolutely loved Heenan - a perfect chicken-heel manager. Flair would be an awesome manager along those lines.
