Bobby Roode had a brilliant run in NXT, where he even became the NXT Champion. His main roster run in comparison never lived up to the hype and expectations. He has been out of action due to a neck injury and now it appears Roode underwent yet another neck fusion surgery recently.
Bobby Roode had a blast as 1/2 of the Dirty Dawgs with Dolph Ziggler, but then his in-ring momentum was stopped abruptly. The former NXT Champion had to undergo neck surgery and he has remained absent since then.
As previously reported, Bobby Roode is expected to be out of action for a considerable amount of time as he underwent neck fusion surgery late last year, as opposed to earlier that year.
Unfortunately, Bobby Roode took to his Instagram and revealed that he had to undergo a second neck fusion surgery, in addition to the one he had last year. He underwent a C4/5 cervical fusion and is now back on the road to recovery.
Another trip around the sun and another trip to Birmingham Alabama. Quite a way to celebrate my birthday lol. Had a C4/5 cervical fusion to go along with the C5/6 fusion back in November. Most importantly it was a success thanks to the man himself Dr Andy Cordover and the first class staff here at @andrews_sports_medicine Big thank you @deneane__17 for being my rock throughout this entire process. It’s been a challenging year to say the least ❤️ Road to recovery part 2! 💪
This is incredibly sad news for Bobby Roode, as he has been sidelined for well over a year now and he might not even make an in-ring return for an additional year at this rate. Regardless, we send our best to the former NXT Champion and wish him a speedy recovery.
