Rusev, the former WWE US Champion has suffered a broken ankle during a SmackDown match several weeks ago. The resulting injury means Rusev will be out until at least the end of July. Once the resting period has passed, Rusev has the option of returning; but this will be determined officially after more testing. Rusev’s injury was originally announced as a broken foot, but has not been deemed a broken ankle. Regardless of the injury, Rusev will be out of action for quite some time.

A broken ankle is experienced when a person fractures their tibia or fibula in the lower leg and ankle area. Both these bones are attached at the bottom of the leg and combine to form what we know to be our ankle.
When a physician is referring to a break of the ankle, he or she is usually referring to a break in the area where the tibia and fibula are joined to create our ankle joint. Ankles are more prone to fractures because the ankle is an area that suffers a lot of pressure and stress. There are some obvious signs when a person experiences a fractured ankle and the following symptoms may be present.
Symptoms of a Fractured Ankle
- Excessive pain when the area is touched or when any pressure is placed on the ankle
- Swelling around the area
- Bruising of the area
- Area appears to be deformed
