Montez Ford posted a photo on his Twitter account of him in a hospital room.
This came after WWE recently did an injury angle on the June 11th episode of SmackDown where he was attacked by Otis. The company posted a storyline update on their website that stated Ford suffered a partial rib fracture and torn intercostal cartilage.
A few days later, Ford’s wife, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, stated during an appearance on WWE’s The Bump that Ford was recovering from the broken rib at home.
It appears this storyline injury was done to cover Ford getting surgery done this week. Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Ford underwent a voluntary surgery this week and it’s not related to any kind of injury.
This surgery isn’t something that should keep him out of action for any significant length of time.
