WWE SmackDown Announcer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com as it pertains to Edge and his recent surgery.
“Edge, who as many know recently tore his Achilles tendon, had surgery a couple of days ago in Birmingham, Alabama under the watchful eye of the best orthopedic surgeon in the world, Dr. Jim Andrews. Dr. Andrews has operated on literally a who’s who in WWE and WCW over the years and even performed surgery last month on future NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre’s passing arm.”
“I communicated with Edge from the hospital and from his home in Florida and, despite the extremely untimely setback, the ‘Rated R Superstar’ was in as good a spirits as one could ask considering the situation. Edge knows what it’s like to be sidelined for an extended length of time by a serious injury therefore he knows what it will take to get back into the game. While in Birmingham, I suggested to Edge that he have someone get him some Dreamland BBQ but he refrained because he “was Jonseing” for some of our Chipolte Ketchup of which will be taken care of next week. I think we have Edge “hooked” on the best ketchup in the world.”
“Dr. Andrews felt that Edge’s surgery was a success but stopped short of providing Edge with an exact return date. Mother Nature will have a say in determining that date but one can assume that it will be no less than 6 months and likely a little longer. I do think that Edge can be back for WrestleMania if his rehab and physical therapy goes well and he doesn’t suffer any unforeseen setbacks. If Edge can successfully and effectively return to WM26 in Arizona it should be a significant boost to the show.”
