He said: “About mid-way through the match I had torn my rectus tendon as well as my abductor tendon off my pelvis, and then I found out that I had three wonderful hernia tears, which I had repaired about three and a half weeks ago. There’s also a lot of fun swelling in the ‘cash and prizes’ area for the first week and a half. Those were sexy times. It’s a lot of fun pain to go through.”
He told Entertainment Tonight that he is glad he was able to spend time with his 11-year-old daughter as a result of the injury. Simone is the child he had with ex-wife and manager Dany Garcia.
He added: “My little girl was so happy that I was able to come home. I said, ‘Well, you know daddy’s still Superman, right?’ It was really nice blessing to slow down. It was almost God’s way of saying, ‘Well, now you’re gonna take a break.'”
