“Unbreakable” Michael Elgin appeared on episode 223 of The Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling to talk about various topics. Here are the highlights.
Update on his broken orbital bone:
“The eye is great. What happened was they take bone from my hip and put it under my orbital because if you use the same bones there it can break easier, so if you put the bone from your hip in there it makes it a little more sturdy so if you take impact to the orbital again and it won’t break so easy. So they did that and to my understanding, I got home and you are supposed to wait three weeks to go to the gym (which I did wait) but my hip was still a little swollen and I just thought (since) there was a surgery that it is going to happen. I then worked out like two days and it just kept swelling more and more. I went into the hospital to have it checked and they were afraid I may have gotten a staph infection.”
“They checked if there was any bacteria or any staph infection and there was not. They had a little surgery to drain it and double check wanting to make sure there was nothing on the bone and cause harm and it was clean. They gave me antibiotics just in case because sometimes on the bone they can lie dormant for a little bit and spring out of nowhere and they wanted to do that as a safety precaution. I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow so I’m hoping that is all good news and that I will be back in the gym and back wrestling soon. ”
Is it his goal to return to the ring in time for NJPW’s Wrestle Kingdom 11:
“That is definitely the goal I have in mind. You don’t want to miss the Tokyo Domes so I will not be missing that.”
