It is an unfortunate reality that injuries are common place in professional wrestling, with a competitors career on the line every time they step in to the ring. This was evidenced as recently as WrestleMania 39, when Shane McMahon made his way to the ring to a huge ovation from the Los Angeles crowd only to be helped back past that same crowd just moments later by medical staff when he suffered a torn quad muscle during a confrontation with The Miz.

With McMahon on the shelf for an indefinite period, reports suggests that another recently returned WWE Superstar has suffered a recurrence of an injury and could be set for a spell on the sideline.

WWE Superstar Johnny Gargano Out With Shoulder Injury

According to a report from Fightful Select, Johnny Gargano could be set for another spell on the sidelines after reaggravating the shoulder injury that sidelined him for several weeks at the beginning of the year.

The 35 year-old Ohio native has not been seen on television since defeating Grayson Waller via submission in an unsanctioned match at NXT: Stand And Deliver in Los Angeles, California on 1st April.

Gargano returned from his original injury layoff at the Royal Rumble in late January, entering the Rumble match at number 5 and lasting just seconds short of thirty minutes before being dumped over the top rope by Judgment Day members Dominik Mysterio and Finn Balor.

The former NXT Champion only wrestled on a handful of occasions in the ensuing weeks as he continued to ease back into the ring and competed on a dozen occasions in March before injury forced him out of action once again.

It is even muted that his shoulder issue left him so hampered by the time his bout with Waller came around that he was effectively left to use one arm for the match.

WWE are hoping that a period of physical therapy can return Gargano to 100%, but a failure to do so would lead to surgery and an extended absence from the ring.
