There is no word on when Santana will return to action. He stated in the Instagram post that he will take time off to rest his injury. IMPACT Wrestling has already taped upcoming weeks of television.


It’s been a rough few days for me but PMA is everything in these cases. Like I’ve said before, sometimes we need UNFRIENDLY reminders to take it easy. This past Sunday at Impact’s show in Queens, I suffered a knee injury during our match. I knew something was wrong right away because it was a feeling I’ve never felt before. The next day, I went to see the same exact doc that took care of me at the show. Had an ultrasound done on my knee which showed a stage 2 tear in my MCL. It’s being held together by strands and he’s surprised that it didn’t completely tear during the rest of the match. He stressed the importance of rest if I want to avoid surgery and risk being out for a longer period of time. That’s a risk I’m truly not willing to take, especially at the point we’re at now. I’m FINALLY listening to my body. I have a family who depend on me. It’s stressful and depressing but I’m trying to look at the glass half full and realize that I’ll get to spend more time with them. I want to apologize to all the events we had to call off the next couple of weeks and to all the fans who were expecting to see us. Thank you for your endless support thru every step of our journey. I AM OK AND WILL BE BACK SOON, NASTIER THAN EVER!
