MVP took to social media to reveal that he had not undergone knee surgery yet, but was planning to get his knee fixed.

On Thursday, MVP posted an update from his hospital bed, revealing that he was undergoing knee surgery and is hopeful to be back in four to six weeks.

"There were some reports going around that I had successful knee surgery. Those reports were wrong, erroneous, mistaken, as usual. I'm having knee surgery, today. As some of you might night, a couple of weeks ago, I took a viscous RKO from Randy Orton on the floor, one I certainly didn't deserve. As a result, I suffered a 'rib injury' [wink]. I figured, while I recover from this 'rib injury,' I would get my knee fixed, the one that has had me hobbled since February when I tore a meniscus and then two weeks later got a second meniscus tear. Since then, I've been hobbling. People thought the cane was cool and dope, but it was necessary. The injury has been real. I'm excited to finally get it fixed so I can get back in the ring and actually wrestle and not be hobbled. I appreciate the well wishes and positive energy. We're going to get through this simply arthroscopic surgery and hopefully I'll be back on Monday Night Raw in four to six weeks," he said.

He and Bobby Lashley earned a WWE Raw Tag Team Title match against Riddle & Orton on the September 6 episode of WWE Raw by winning Tag Team Turmoil.

Fightful would like to send best wishes to MVP during his recovery.
