Afa Anoa’i Undergoes Surgery, ‘WWE World’ At WrestleMania, Slammy Awards Nominees



As we previously reported here on eWn, WWE Hall of Famer Afa Anoa’i (The Wild Samoan) fractured his back in two places after a fall.

Anoa’i was scheduled to undergo surgery earlier this week to fix the fractures in his back, but it was postponed because he was also set for a heart valve replacement surgery and doctors were figuring out whether to do that first.

Pwinsider is reporting that Afa was operated on today and the surgery was successful. Anoa’i will still need to undergo heart valve replacement surgery at some point.

On behalf of everyone here on eWn, we send our best wishes to Anao’i and his family.
