ROBERT ROODE: Robert Roode undergoes second spinal fusion surgery

Posted on 5/12/123 by Colin Vassallo

Former NXT champion Robert Roode
underwent a successful second spinal
fusion surgery last week. The surgery
was performed by Dr Andy Cordover of the
Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic
Center in Birmingham, Alabama.

“Another trip around the sun and another
trip to Birmingham Alabama,” Roode wrote
on what was his 47th birthday. “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.”

Roode has not wrestled on television
since April 2022, with his last
appearance coming at the Andre The Giant
Memorial Battle Royal on Smackdown
during WrestleMania 38 weekend. His last
match was on June 25 against Omos at a
non-televised live event in Amarillo,

It is unknown how long Roode will be out
of action for again but typical recovery
time for light movements is around six
weeks and months until Roode can even
think of getting back in the ring.
