Robert Roode has shared a hospital photo after a recent neck fusion surgery.
For nearly 20 years, Robert Roode has been wrestling regularly on television. He was a regular in TNA either using the name of Bobby or Robert Roode from 2004 as a young guy in Team Canada. During his TNA career, Roode would win everything in that company including two reigns as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion.
In 2016, Roode debuted in WWE on the NXT brand and had a glorious run there with a memorable entrance song while having a lot of success in the ring as the NXT Champion as well.
Since joining the WWE main roster in August 2017, Roode has accomplished a lot including a run as the United States Champion and three Tag Team Championship reigns including two runs with Dolph Ziggler on Raw & Smackdown. Together, Roode & Ziggler formed a heel team known as the Dirty Dawgs.
There was an update on Roode in early November 2022 nothing that he had an operation in September.
On his Instagram account, Roode posted a photo from a hospital bed while also including a scar on his neck and photos where he’s in a neckbrace. Roode mentioned having C5/6 neck fusion surgery.
Big thank you to Dr Andy Cordover and his amazing staff at @andrews_sports_medicine and St Vincent’s Hospital in Birmingham Alabama

It is currently unknown how long the 46-year-old Roode will be out of action as far as wrestling goes. As he wrote above, he’s looking forward to the challenge.
