AEW’s Trent Provides Update On Recovery From Neck Fusion Surgery


Best Friends (Trent, Orange Cassidy & Chuck Taylor) sat down with Brandon F. Walker on his ‘Rasslin podcast

During it, Trent provided an update on his recovery from neck fusion surgery that he had done over the summer. This came after he had returned from a torn pectoral injury. 

“I don’t know [when I’m coming back] because it’s just like, there’s not even rehab to do. It’s just waiting for my bones to grow together.

I just gotta wait for my bones to grow together though, you know what I mean? They put the plates in and they take the discs out and then in-between they put — he said it’s like a crushed coral. I don’t understand why it’s not just floating around but — it’s something like that and then the bone grows into where the crush coral — I think it’s like a little disc thing with the coral in it. It’s not actually coral. They drill the sh*t in and then they just — there was only the metal keeping my neck together after surgery.”

“I think [I’m okay]. I got my neck fused… I had so much extra bone growth and stuff, my discs were crushed and my bones were starting to fuse themselves together and I was getting sleep apnea. I was waking up gasping for air in the middle of the night and I was having — sometimes I’d have trouble swallowing my own spit and I just thought it was nothing but post-surgery. I guess I had so many extra bones and sh*t growing in my [points to throat] that my sleep apnea was gone.”
