IMPACT Wrestling's Eddie Edwards Comments On Appendix Surgery

Following a bout of appendicitis

Eddie Edwards was suddenly pulled from IMPACT Wrestling's latest tapings last week after an attack of appendicitis. 

The two-time IMPACT World Champion underwent surgery to remove his appendix on May 17 and he will be out of action for a little while. There is no definitive timeframe as to when he will return but Edwards will be on the shelf for four to six weeks if he had open surgery. 

Now back at home, Edwards commented on his surgery yesterday and thanked fans and the IMPACT locker room for their support, writing: "Finally back home after an extended stay in Nashville. Yah im an appendix short but Im good! Thank you to all who reached out. It always amazes me how supportive this industry can be. Ive said it before and Ill say it again the @IMPACTWRESTLING locker room is a family. THANK YOU." 

Edwards last stepped inside the ring at Under Siege when he and FinJuice defeated Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers. He looked set for a renewed push following the win, but IMPACT's post-Against All Odds plans remain unknown.
