Santino Marella underwent surgery on Wednesday and wrote on Facebook there were some unexpected broken bones in his neck. He noted that "everything is looking good" and he ia planning on coming back in 6 months to "perform in front of the WWE Universe."
Below is his update from Facebook in its entirety:
Surgery went well, there were some unexpected broken bones in my neck apparently but everything is looking good now, let the legendary comeback begin! 6 months till I get to do what I was born to do again, perform in front of the wwe universe
Santino seemingly announced his retirement from the ring at WWE's July 6, 2014 live event in Toronto, Ontario, Canada due to neck issues. Dot com stopped short of that, calling it a “career-related announcement.
Last month, Brooks covered the possibility of Santino coming back following neck fusion surgery. I assume that was the procedure done on Wednesday, however, cannot confirm 100% at press time.
