Backstage Update On Bill Goldberg And WWE Fastlane, Darren Young's Injury, Vince McMahon Surgery
It was believed that Vince was still using crutches to get around after undergoing surgery for a torn quad back in September but word now is that the WWE Chairman recently went under the knife again, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Vince reportedly had minor hip surgery recently. No other details are available but The Observer noted that the operation was similar to the hip surgery that The Undertaker underwent in mid-2016.
- As noted, Bill Goldberg is booked for the March 5th WWE Fastlane pay-per-view but his WrestleMania 33 opponent Brock Lesnar is not. Word is that Goldberg is set to work a main event match at that pay-per-view. No word yet on who his opponent might be.
- Regarding Darren Young's elbow injury suffered at the WWE Main Event tapings on Monday night, the preliminary diagnosis is that he will be out of action for 6 months. As noted on Wednesday, Young took to Twitter and confirmed the injury. He wrote, "Hyperextension which resulted in a traumatic dislocation & fracture of the coronoid process of the right elbow."
