WWE News: WWE Superstar In Birmingham For Surgery

Published

on

Looks like the WWE roster is currently dealing with a virus known as the “injury bug”, as we’ve seen a number of Superstars go down over the past couple of weeks. First, Shinsuke Nakamura was bitten by a police dog backstage at a Live Event (check that out here), then Bray Wyatt gets into a car accident on the way to the Tampa airport (find that here), Ruby Riott sprains her MCL (read this one here), plus Fandango has now undergone surgery for a left labrum tear (for more on that, go here).

While Nakamura and Wyatt have both returned to action now, Ruby is expected to be out at least a couple of weeks and Fandango will be on the shelf for months. However, another Superstar has revealed that he was in Birmingham, Alabama today for surgery with Dr. Jeffrey Dugas as Goldust tweeted out the following:

While Dustin did not specify what kind of surgery he was having, he did reply to a fan’s question, implying that this was more of a wear-and-tear issue with his knees:

We will keep you updated on Goldust’s surgery and timetable for a return as soon as more information becomes available.

WWE News: WWE Network To Air Starrcade Special Next Sunday

Published

WWE Starrcade
Next weekend’s WWE Starrcade event will air on the WWE Network…sort of.

While the WWE Universe is focused on tonight’s NXT TakeOver: War Games II and tomorrow night’s Survivor Series, next Saturday the company will present its second Starrcade event from Cincinnati, Ohio.





After reviving the old NWA/WCW pay-per-view namesake for a special Live Event last year, WWE decided to move this year’s show outside of North Carolina. Yesterday, we noted how some changes were made to the card as the previously scheduled Steel Cage Match between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair has been removed (see the full lineup here). At this time, Charlotte is still advertised to appear, however it’s now not known exactly in what capacity she will be used.

Additionally, many fans had hoped that this year’s Starrcade would be available on the WWE Network after missing out on last year’s and it looks like they will be getting their wish in some fashion. PWInsider was the first to report that the WWE Network schedule is listing Starrcade to air as a one-hour special next Sunday, the night after the event, at 8PM EST. Currently, there are no details on which matches from the event will air.

Joey Ryan Gives Details On His Injury, Will Be Undergoing Surgery

Published

Joey Ryan
Joey Ryan has updated everybody on his injury status!

As we noted in our spoiler coverage, Joey Ryan competed alongside Swoggle at Major League Wrestling’s Fightland television tapings last week in Chicago, however could not use his left arm and revealed after the match that he was injured (see the spoiler results here).





While Joey had yet to see a doctor and learn the full extent of his injury, the belief was he had suffered a torn pec, an injury we also just saw Triple H suffer at WWE Crown Jewel. Ryan has since had an MRI and revealed the full results today via Instagram:

“The MRI revealed that I have an acute tear of the left pectoral major, including a high-grade tear of the clavicular head at the myotendinous junction and a high-grade intratendinous tear of the sternal head with retraction and hemorrhage into the muscle belly. Disorganized fibers of the muscle-tender tear identified within the deltiopectoral groove.

The doctor is recommending surgery and I’m to call the surgeon on Monday or Tuesday to set up an appointment to see them.

A timetable on recovery will be determined by the surgeon.”

While of course nothing concrete can be said until surgery, the recovery time for a torn pec can be as little as five months on the low end, but up to nine months on the higher end of the spectrum should no complications arise.
