Speedy recovery for Kennedy?

Speedy recovery for Kennedy?

Edge may not want to get too comfortable wearing the World Heavyweight Championship around his Rated-R waist. WWE.com has received word that the initial prognosis for Mr. Kennedy's arm injury was overstated.

Based on Kennedy's extensive MRI at the Birmingham, Ala., offices of Dr. James Andrews, WWE's Dr. Ferdinand Rios now reports that the SmackDown Superstar's triceps tendon "was not torn from the bone as originally reported, and will not require surgery."

Due to the severity of Kennedy's hematoma — a collection of blood within a tissue or organ — he is still not cleared to compete from a medical standpoint.

"He's still vulnerable to injury and the arm remains badly swollen," said Dr. Rios. "I'd expect him to be out of action for about six to eight weeks."

Upon hearing the positive report, WWE.com caught up with the former Money in the Bank holder. Though clearly relieved, he's already shifting his focus from a likely six months of recovery time to plotting his next move.

"This is great news for me; I don't have a torn muscle," Kennedy said. "But the good news for me is really, really bad news for Edge. He took something from me…took advantage of my unfortunate situation. Now he and everyone else have just a short amount of time to worry about what I'm going to do when I get back."
