Mojo Rawley Reacts To Zack Ryder's Injury

On Tuesday night, while winning a Tag Team #1 Contendership Battle Royal for The Hype Bros, Zack Ryder suffered a knee injury.

On Wednesday, he went in for an MRI, the results of which have still not been announced.

Yesterday, he announced that he had flown to Birmingham, Alabama to consult with the famous James Andrews Clinic. He would later announce that he was having knee surgery.

Along with the concern for Ryder's health, people on the internet were wondering how his tag team partner Mojo Rawley would respond to this setback. After all, they had just become #1 Contenders to the Smackdown Tag Championships and now he had just lost his partner.

Well, wonder no more, people on the internet.

Mojo uploaded a photo to his Instagram of him congratulating his friend on winning the Intercontinental Title at Wrestlemania 32 earlier this year, and with it, he included this post:

About 18 months ago, the idea of the #HYPEBros was presented to (Zack Ryder) and I. Truthfully, neither of us liked the idea to begin with. But we gave it a shot. I looked at it as an opportunity to learn from a 10 year WWE veteran and Zack looked at it as a way to have a fresh breath in his career. After meeting Zack, I could not believe that there was a person in this world that was so unlike me. We both knew that we were going to have our hands full trying to make this team work, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Even though daily we discover new ways that make us different, I have come to look at Zack as not only a friend, but as my family.

Today, Zack had knee surgery to repair an injury he sustained while winning us the #1 Contendership for the Tag Team titles in my hometown. He gave his knee for his dream, and for the Hype Bros. He gave his knee for a team that he was unsure of in the beginning, and gave his knee for my family sitting there in their hometown arena watching and hoping to see their boys win a title shot. Most importantly, he gave his knee for the entertainment of all the fans who love the WWE and rely on it for strength in their own lives; whether they are Zack Ryder or Hype Bros fans or not. All the respect and gratitude in the world to him.

I don't know when he will back, but I can assure you that this is just a small bump in the road. The guy has made a career off of perpetually being the underdog and overcoming tremendous odds. I don't know many people who could have lasted through the years and some of the situations he incurred, but I can tell you it has all made him better in the end. There is no derailing the Hype Train. Ever. Prayers up for Broski. #FAMILY

It remains unclear what the top brass has planned for Mojo now that Ryder is on the shelf for a while, but one thing that's crystal clear is that Mojo Rawley is a really good friend.
