D-Von Dudley hasn’t been an active wrestler for several years. Despite this, long-term injuries are a part of being a professional wrestler. The tag team wrestling legend has said previously that he’s got four bulging discs in his back.
In an appearance on Table Talk, WWE Hall of Famer D-Von updated fans on his plan to take care of the lingering back problems. D-Von said WWE is taking care of his back thanks to the great insurance plan provided by the company. He’s currently employed as a producer. Dudley described the procedure.
“I saw three different surgeons. The third one, WWE was comfortable with it. I go on December 8 for a minor procedure. I go for the consultation on December 8 and he’ll give me the date on when it’ll happen.
They’ll go in with a thin needle, get the disc, fuse it, move it back to where it needs to be, put the bolt and screw in and I’m good to go. They said about two to three weeks tops. I’ve been dealing with this since about 2010. A lot of us deal with this pain with our backs and sometimes it gets to the point where you can’t take it anymore and you have to do something about it.
There are other guys where their backs are messed up and they don’t have the insurance or money to take care of it. WWE provides great health insurance so I’m able to go see a doctor, a couple doctors, and (have) the insurance because I can only imagine what that surgery would cost.”
D-Von Dudley compared his surgery to having a knee scoped. He said it’s just a part of being a wrestler. Fortunately, it sounds like D-Von will be getting some relief soon. You can check out his appearance on Table Talk below.
