Jinder Mahal and Sunil Singh have missed Samir on SmackDown

What's the story?

We had recently reported that SmackDown Live Superstar Samir Singh had suffered a pretty serious injury in the form of an ACL tear, with an update that one half of the Singh Brothers was recovering at a medical center in Birmingham, Alabama.

Well, Samir Singh has taken to social media to post an inspiring video of his recovery - he's having to learn how to walk all over again due to the injury and subsequent surgery.

In case you didn't know...

Samir and Sunil Singh debuted in WWE as the Bollywood Boyz in the Cruiserweight Classic but made a monumental impact during Jinder Mahal's WWE Championship run as the Singh Brothers - perhaps being best known for the incredible bumps they've taken, especially at the hands of Randy Orton.

The Singh Brothers have been instrumental in Jinder Mahal's meteoric rise from the mid-card to the very top but an injury incurred during a run-in on Jinder Mahal's United States Championship Tournament match with Bobby Roode has taken three down to two, with Samir sidelined.

The heart of the matter

Well, the last we knew, Samir was on crutches and had a huge recovery boot on, but seemed upbeat about his recovery and future.

Well, there's good news in that, while Samir still cannot walk unaided, he's now well on the road to recovery - taking to Twitter to post a video of him "learning to walk again" with the aid of only one crutch.

Samir even joked on Twitter that he had Jinder's back during SmackDown Live on Tuesday.


What's next?

While Jinder Mahal's reinforcements have been halved, Jinder and Sunil Singh remain a pretty integral part of SmackDown Live. This week, they were involved in a segment with Randy Orton and Bobby Roode with Sunil taking an RKO outta nowhere - but Jinder left looking strong and could very well be in line for a United States Championship shot!

As for Samir, we wish him the best in his recovery. Fingers crossed he isn't sidelined for too long.

Author's take

I think the Singh Brothers are incredibly underrated and undervalued. Who knew they'd be such a big part of WWE television back when they debuted at the Cruiserweight Classic?

Love them or hate them, you definitely have to respect them for taking some absolutely crazy bumps, and I really hope they're reunited on television soon.
