During last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW, the commentary team revealed that WWE Superstar Candice LeRae suffered an AC sprain in her right shoulder and will therefore be out for the foreseeable future.
LeRae made her return to the company last September after taking time away from the industry to have her first child with fellow WWE Superstar, Johnny Gargano.
Last week, LeRae defeated Scottish star Piper Niven on RAW. However, after the match, Candice was then attacked by her opponent during a backstage interview with Byron Saxton.
With WrestleMania 39 just over three weeks away, Candice LeRae may very well miss out on performing on The Grandest Stage of Them All this year after this latest injury setback.
Cody Rhodes’s injury was a “blessing”, claims former WWE Superstar
One performer who returned this year after suffering a major pectoral injury was The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes, who won the men’s Royal Rumble match when he made his comeback in January.
Speaking on Sportskeeda’s Wrestle Binge, former WWE star Matt Cardona (a.k.a. Zack Ryder) stated that Rhodes’ injury may have been a blessing in disguise, considering the position he now finds himself in.
“I’m going with Cody (Rhodes). I mean, he comes back at WrestleMania. Was it a surprise? Maybe not, but sometimes in wrestling, you need to give the fans what they want, and the fans knew he was coming, and they were happy for his return. And unfortunately, he went down and was sidelined at Hell in a Cell. But I think that was almost a blessing in disguise because this man had two comebacks in one calendar year,” Cardona said.
