UPDATE: Reports that Lars Sullivan will be out six to nine months due to his knee injury are confirmed. Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Live that Sullivan is out of surgery and that he will indeed be out for that long.

As reported earlier, Sullivan required surgery after an MRI revealed that his knee injury, suffered last week, was worse than previously thought. WWE has yet to officially comment on the injury.

ORIGINAL: It was reported last week that a match between Lars Sullivan and Matt Hardy had been set for an episode of Smackdown, but was pulled because of what was believed at the time to be a minor injury to Sullivan. However, an update later revealed that Sullivan had to have an MRI because the injury was worse than originally thought.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that it’s now believed that Sullivan has a knee injury. He had the MRI last week and WWE now believes that he will be out anywhere from six to nine months. No other details have been revealed, including when “The Freak” is except to undergo surgery, or if he already has.
