John Morrison out due to injury
John Morrison will be sidelined between four and six weeks due to a pinched nerve in his neck suffered at the hands of R-Truth last week on Raw. The Superstar broke news of his injury on his Twitter account Monday afternoon.
“I am about to get an operation to fix my neck – I will return @RonKillings,” JoMo told his followers, specifically referencing his Raw rival.
After an MRI confirmed the diagnosis, Morrison was treated by Dr. Joseph Maroon, a renowned neurosurgeon and medical director of WWE. In a procedure to alleviate pain and weakness in his arm, Dr. Maroon created a small incision in the back of Morrison’s neck and removed a bone spur and a small fragment of the C5-C6 disc from around the nerve root. He noticed immediate improvement in strength and decreased numbness in his arm in the recovery room.
“This is considered minimally invasive surgery,” said Dr. Christopher Amann, WWE’s senior ringside physician. “Unlike other procedures, such as those undergone by John Cena and Edge, the typical recovery time is four to six weeks.”
At press time, Morrison had not returned calls, texts, emails or tweets. WWE wishes him a quick recovery.
