WWE STAR UNDERGOES NECK SURGERY

By Mike Johnson on 2014-09-17 17:42:03
Santino Marella announced on his Facebook Page today that he had undergone successful surgery on his neck, hoping to pave the way to an in-ring WWE comeback.

Marella wrote, "Surgery went well. There were some unexpected broken bones in my neck apparently, but everything is looking good now. Let the legendary comeback begin!"

Marella announced he was retiring during a promo on a house show in his hometown of Toronto last July, although WWE has never once referred to him as having officially retired as an active competitor.

The former Intercontinental champion noted it would be six months before he would be able to perform. That would put him in line to appear in March/April, right around Wrestlemania season.
