“I know that many of you, you’d consider this a burden or a setback, but not me. I consider this a gift. I’m happy that I had a tear in my meniscus," said Dijakovic before showing his wrapped knee. "Because this represents sacrifice, this represents discipline. I had to rip away the weakness to rebuild it to be stronger than ever using my blood. When I was through, the only ones waiting for me were my family. They will drive me to return stronger than ever and regain what is rightfully ours. And that's the North American Championship."

Dijakovic last wrestled on Apr. 19 at an NXT live event, losing to Velveteen Dream. Dijakovic looked poised to feud with Velveteen Dream over the NXT North American Championship on television, but he was not used at last week's television tapings as a new challenger emerged for Dream. 

There is no timetable set for when Dijakovic will return.
