Yeah it does suck but he did exactly what he should have done. ive read where people are saying why didnt he have surgery right after the season. He still would have been out for the season if he had surgery after the season. He came back try to tough it out with no acls but it didnt work out so get the surgery now come back next year healthy and win a 4th title.
Knees need surgery? Sounds pretty wussy to me.
His "excuses are for wusses" comment was understandable at the time, but also immature. He's better than that comment, and hopefully he'll be an even better wrestler after his 2 knee surgeries.
