Chris Sabin Confirms ACL Tear; Out 8-12 Months

Chris Sabin confirmed the worst.

Taking to social media, Sabin confirmed that he suffered a torn ACL on Jan. 12 during ROH's television tapings in Atlanta. Sabin was competing in a six-way bout against Shane Taylor, Luchasaurus, Rhett Titus, Kenny King and Flip Gordon.

Mike R., a fan in attendance at the TV taping, told PWInsider, "After taking a bump halfway through the match, Sabin rolled to the outside and grabbed at his knee. Trainers came over, and Sabin did not participate in the rest of the match. At the end of the match, Sabin was assisted out of the ringside area being taken out through a different exit than the other wrestlers."

Flip Gordon, who suffered a torn MCL the following night at Honor Reigns Supreme, wished Sabin a speedy recovery.

Sabin previously suffered ACL tears in 2012 and 2013 while wrestling for TNA/IMPACT.
