Davey Boy Smith Jr. has revealed that he has undergone surgery for appendicitis and diverticulitis.
The MLW star was scheduled to compete at the Slaughterhouse event on October 14th but this has been understandably cancelled. As a result, Tom Lawlor has been announced as a replacement.
Updating fans on Instagram, Davey Boy Smith Jr. described himself as being in more pain than he had ever felt but is now in a stable condition. The MLW star signed off by thanking everyone for their well wishes.
I wanted to inform everyone officially I needed to have Emergency surgery late last night for appendicitis + appendix removal, to find out it was diverticulitis as well. I have had part of colon removed with some of my appendix as well for the procedure. Folks this was one of the most painful experiences of my life, but I’m glad I got it done. A burst appendix can lead to serious complications too.
I’m sad to announce my withdrawal from the @majorleaguewrestling World Title Match vs. Alex Kane this weekend in Philadelphia as well. Hopefully I can get this same opportunity in the future when I’m back healthy, and so sorry to my fans, these things happen and was not something I ever want to endure again! Trust me! The was a 12/10 in the pain scale. Arigatou. I’m in stable condition now, but I am still in immense pain I’ll keep everyone posted with updates.
Thanks for everyone reaching out to me also.
