For several months, D-Von Dudley mentioned on his Table Talk podcast that he was going to have back surgery and the WWE Hall of Famer had that surgery done recently. D-Von posted an image of himself on Instagram post-surgery and explained why he needed to have the operation.

He shared that the damage to his spine was worse than what doctors thought. After it was completed, he was informed that he’ll be able to start running, jumping and moving more swiftly overall. Due to his years of wrestling, D-Von’s spine had to be shifted during the operation.

They had to fuse L4, L5 and L6. The damage was a lot worse than they thought. The surgery took longer than they anticipated. But God is good and he the DOCTER said I am a new man. I can run, I can jump, I can beat my son Preston in basketball on the basketball court . LOL and racing him down the street lol, he thinks he can beat the old man. They also had to shift my spine a little bit with a curve. Because it was a straight line. That was because of all the wrestling. Then again, all of it was because of wrestling. They put the bolts screws and a plates in my back. They had to go up higher in my back they told me . I was told I could not wrestle anymore because if I do I could do more damage to my back I would have to have surgery again on the upper part. That’s OK I didn’t have plans On going back in there anyway. I would be in the hospital From Tuesday to Friday from My understanding. Unless it changes. Again ,thank you for all the well wishes and love. God is a great all the time . Amen and testify.

D-Von works as a producer for WWE. He previously shared that he was behind the 24/7 Title segments when Reggie had the title over the summer of 2021.
