Santino Marella undergoes neck surgery

Former WWE Intercontinental champion Santino Marella wrote on his Twitter that he underwent neck surgery yesterday and it was a success.

“Not only did they perform a double fusion, they also removed a piece of broken bone,” he wrote, adding that the road to recovery starts immediately.

He noted that with this new titanium plate inserted in his neck, he will be better than ever and if he’s ever medically cleared to return to the ring next year, he knows where he will be training!

Marella owns a wrestling and mixed martial arts gym in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, called Battle Arts Academy.

A few months ago Marella announced he was retiring from the ring due to his neck injuries during a non-televised live event in Toronto.
