22-year-old sensation Emmanuel Roman Morales, better known as El Hijo del Vikingo, reportedly ruptured his MCL this past weekend. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the two-time AAA Trios Champion will thankfully not require surgery, and should be back in action in about six weeks time.
Vikingo has been wrestling for AAA for the last three years, and is one of the most promising up-and-coming names out of Mexico right now. He has gained some growing interest in the U.S., working a few dates with Impact Wrestling, as well as a wild Trios Championship match at TripleMania earlier this month that had a lot of fans talking.
Unfortunately, this means the young star will miss the upcoming AAA show at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater on September 15. The promotion will also be running at The Forum in L.A. on October 13, which could be a possibility, but that will completely depend on how his recovery and rehab goes.
