As noted, Vince McMahon suffered a torn quad this past week while doing squats. Vince had surgery earlier in the week and according to WWE, he was back at company HQ on Wednesday.

The 71 year old WWE boss was actually squatting a significant amount of weight, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Vince did miss Sunday's Backlash pay-per-view and this week's TV tapings. Details on the injury are still sketchy as Vince wanted to keep it quiet, despite the unusual announcement on the WWE website before RAW.
