– Fandango recently suffered a torn labrum which required surgery. He was in Birmingham, Alabama yesterday for the procedure and it was said to be a success. Fandango was happy to report his status update via social media and thank everyone for their support.
Fandango’s injury halted Breezango’s momentum as a team. An injury of his type can keep Fandango out of action for at least six months.
Surgery went well🙏 Very overwhelming to get so many nice tweets/texts/calls. This surgery will be a thing of the past. The ❤️ is forever🙏 …..

Fandango’s tag team partner, Tyler Breeze, was asked how he will deal with his partner’s absence. One fan was especially blunt when he asked Breeze if he was ready for six months of being treated like an enhancement talent until his partner comes back.
Breeze responded asking if the fan meant the last three years instead, referencing the team’s frequent losses. Breezango’s last match was in late June on Main Event where they partnered with Bobby Roode to defeat The Ascension and Curt Hawkins in a six-man tag match.
Hasn’t that been the last 3 years? https://t.co/FLwgwrLRpm

During a recent interview with The Gorilla Position, Fandango opened up about wanting to transition out of the team’s comedic personas and take part in more in-ring action.
“We are not completely comedy and backstage characters, but a little bit of The Files and a little bit of time in the ring. I think we wrestled about 4-5 times by the end of the year last year so this year we are hoping for a little more in-ring time, which I think would be great.”
– As noted, Hiromu Takahashi suffered a neck injury in his IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship match against Dragon Lee at last weekend’s G1 Special in San Francisco. After finishing the match, he reportedly collapsed backstage and was taken to the hospital shortly after.
NJPW previously confirmed he’s conscious and is able to sit/talk. Earlier today, NJPW gave some more information on Takahashi being transported back to Japan for further treatment.
“On July 7, during the G1 Special in San Francisco event, Hiromu Takahashi sustained a neck injury and was taken to a San Francisco hospital for evaluation.
Takahashi was able to return to Japan today, and will proceed with treatment. We apologize for the delay in publishing this update, which was in order to ensure smooth and efficient transit for Takahashi at the airport. We deeply appreciate our fans’ concerns. Please stay tuned to NJPW for further updates.”
