Fandango Undergoes Surgery On Left Arm; Out Indefinitely

More injury news for the dancin' man...

Fandango missed over a year of action between June 2018 and August 2019, dealing with the effects of a torn labrum in his shoulder. Unfortunately, it appears the injury bug has bitten once more.

The superstar has undergone Tommy John surgery, or ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction, in his left arm. Fandango confirmed the procedure in an Instagram post, joking, "My dreams of pitching in the mlb are kinda over".

The injury took place at the December 11 NXT tapings in Winter Park, FL, where Fandango and Tyler Breeze defeated the Singh Brothers. The injury apparently stemmed from an elbow performed from the apron to the outside.

No timetable has been set for Fandango's return. In baseball, six months of rehab are standard for position players who undergo the surgery, while pitchers can be out for a year or longer.

Fandango returned to the NXT brand this past summer, reuniting with Breeze. His last match prior to his long injury layoff came at the June 25, 2018 Main Event tapings, competing in a six-man tag.
