Andrade El Idolo wrote on social media that he recently underwent surgery for a torn pectoral muscle.
On Twitter, Idolo wrote that he suffered the injury a few months ago during a match.
“My first surgery. I can’t believe it happened,” Idolo wrote. “A few months ago, I tore my pectoral. Thanks god! I could and wanted to finish my match. I kept working because I love the business but we know that many people do not value your effort, these days off I took the opportunity to go to Dr.”
Idolo pulled out of an independent booking earlier this month due to what he said was “an issue to attend”. While recording a message explaining his pulling out, he was wearing what appeared to be a hospital gown.
Idolo’s last match in AEW was on September 4, where he lost a ladder match at All Out that was eventually won by MJF. He was scheduled to face 10 of the Dark Order during the October 5 taping of AEW Rampage, but was suspended from the company following a backstage altercation with Sammy Guevara.
