Montez Ford posted the following picture on Twitter yesterday:
Ford has recently been feuding on SmackDown with Alpha Academy’s Chad Gable and Otis. An injury angle aired on the June 11 episode where Otis splashed and slammed Ford multiple times. WWE officials had to storm the ring to stop Otis from doing even further damage.
When Ford posted the above picture of him in the hospital preparing for surgery, it became apparent that the June 11 angle on SmackDown was a cover story for a real-life operation.
In the newest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer provides the following update on Ford’s status:
“He did get legitimate surgery, a voluntary surgery not related to an injury and not something that should keep him out of action for any significant length of time.”
It sounds like the procedure wasn’t too serious. Montez is on the mend now, and should be back on WWE television before too long.
