WWE Network cameras followed along as Tommaso Ciampa went under the knife to repair his injured neck earlier this month. The Blackheart underwent anterior cervical fusion surgery, which consisted of taking “the pressure off the spinal cord,” Dr. Andrew Michael Cordover, an orthopedic surgeon at Andrews Sports Medicine, explained in a video detailing the procedure. “Then we replace that ruptured disc with a donor bone and also some bone from his hip.”

Though the unfortunate injury cost Ciampa the NXT Championship, or “Goldy” as he has proudly nicknamed the prized title, as well as a bout at TakeOver: New York, the self-professed “Greatest Sports-Entertainer of All Time” is now on the road to recovery. Once he is cleared for action, expect The Blackheart to hit the ground running.
