Powerhouse Hobbs Undergoes Knee Surgery, Begins Physical Therapy

AEW star Powerhouse Hobbs is on the road to recovery after undergoing knee surgery to repair a patellar tendon injury sustained during an IWGP Championship match against Jon Moxley on the April 24 episode of AEW Dynamite in Jacksonville, Florida. The injury occurred when Moxley put Hobbs in a bulldog choke, resulting in a referee stoppage.

According to Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer, Hobbs was favoring his knee at the end of the match and hopped to the back after the bout was over. The extent of the injury was initially unknown, but Hobbs later revealed on Twitter that he had suffered a patellar tendon tear that required surgical repair.

Three weeks post-surgery, Hobbs shared an update on his recovery, posting a photo of himself during his first physical therapy session. "1st PT session 3 week post op Patellar tenon repair BigBlacknJacked TheBluePrint Monstar," he captioned the image on Twitter.

The exact timeline for Hobbs' return to the ring remains uncertain, but fans will undoubtedly miss his presence during his recovery. Some have falsely accused Hobbs of getting injured multiple times, but this is his first injury since joining AEW in 2020.

Hobbs began his AEW journey in 2020, losing his debut match to Orange Cassidy on AEW Dark. During his time with the company, he has held the TNT Championship title and established himself as a prominent figure in the roster. With AEW building towards its Double or Nothing pay-per-view event later this month, Hobbs' recovery will be closely monitored by fans and the wrestling community alike.

As Powerhouse Hobbs continues his rehabilitation, the wrestling world sends its best wishes for a speedy recovery. The former TNT Champion's absence will be felt, but fans eagerly await his triumphant return to the squared circle once he has fully healed from this setback.
