D-Von Dudley was one-half of one of the most iconic tag teams in wrestling history. Along with storyline half-brother Bubba Ray Dudley, the Dudley Boyz reigned supreme during one of the most exciting times in the history of WWE’s tag team division. The duo first formed in ECW and went on to become one of the most popular duos of all time.

The Dudleys had some of their most famous matches with The Hardys and Edge and Christian. Some of those TLC matches saw some inhumanely violent bumps as the team looked to finish off their opponents with their devastating 3D finisher. It’s no surprise that D-Von Dudley was having some back problems recently.

D-Von had spinal fusion surgery to repair the damage. Dudley reported via a Facebook post that the surgery to fuse his L4, L5, and L6 vertibrae was a success. D-Von is already feeling better. Despite the successful operation, the doctor told him that he could never wrestle again.

“They had to fuse L4, L5 and L6. The damage was a lot worse than they thought. The surgery took longer than they anticipated. But God is good and he the DOCTER said I am a new man. I can run, I can jump, I can beat my son Preston in basketball on the basketball court . LOL and racing him down the street lol, he thinks he can beat the old man. They also had to shift my spine a little bit with a curve. Because it was a straight line. That was because of all the wrestling.


Then again, all of it was because of wrestling.They put the bolts screws and a plates in my back. They had to go up higher in my back they told me . I was told I could not wrestle anymore because if I do I could do more damage to my back I would have to have surgery again on the upper part. That’s OK I didn’t have plans On going back in there anyway.I would be in the hospital From Tuesday to Friday from My understanding. Unless it changes. Again ,thank you for all the well wishes and love.God is a great all the time . Amen —- and testify.”

D-Von sounds like he is on the road to recovery. He’s looking forward to using his newly-repaired spine to play hoops with his son. It is great to hear that D-Von’s operation was a major success. Get well soon, D-Von!
