There was a point this year that Ridge Holland had his knee cleaned out.
The Brawling Brutes (Sheamus, Butch & Ridge Holland) scored a win over Imperium (GUNTHER, Ludwig Kaiser & Fabian Aichner) in the opening match of WWE’s Extreme Rules Premium Live Event.
Immediately following their victory, the trio sat down with David Shoemaker of The Ringer Wrestling Show for an interview.
As Ridge was talking, he began to recap the past several years of his career. He went on to mention that there was a point when he had his knee cleaned out this year. Back on the June 11th SmackDown, Michael Cole stated on commentary that Holland was sidelined with a knee injury.
I remember when I hurt my legs, I was out for ten months. As soon as I had the surgery, I was thinking, okay, how can I get back? Because I felt like I had a point to prove. I felt like I got the rug pulled out from under me and I managed to get through that injury and then I came up to the main roster, to SmackDown, broke my nose, there was an unfortunate incident with Big E and then I had to have a knee clean out. So it just felt like stop, start. But the one thing is you just keep going. Stay focus, turn up to work and you know, obviously with these two [Sheamus & Butch] at my side with advice because I’m the least experienced here. I’m probably one of the least experienced on the roster so to have these two gents coaching me up, it’s fantastic. All I’ll say is keep going, turn up to work and don’t lose focus.
