Not that one. The other one.

Multiple outlets have confirmed a story, which picked up from TMZ, that actor, former Governor of California and playable character in WWE 2K16 Arnold Schwarzenegger underwent heart surgery recently.

Contrary to the TMZ report however, the WWE Hall of Famer’s spokesperson says it was not an emergency procedure, but something which had been planned for the 70 year old who first had a valve replaced back in 1997 due to a congenital defect.

The chief of staff for Schwarzenegger’s production company issued the following statement:
