WWE's Arturo Ruas undergoes successful surgery


After suffering an injury during a match on NXT last month, Arturo Ruas (real name Adrian Jaoude) has confirmed that he's undergone successful surgery.

"The surgery was successful now it’s time to heal and comeback stronger," Ruas wrote on Saturday. "For a warrior there will only be victory with a good fight and glory with honor. #beastmode #healing #champion #wwe #wwenxt #meteamao #technique"

Ruas didn't reveal the exact injury that he suffered. He posted a picture with his left arm/shoulder bandaged and with a scar on it. On WWE digital's weekly NXT injury report following the episode where he was hurt, it was said that Ruas had injured his right biceps, wasn't medically cleared for action, and would be going for an MRI.

Ruas was injured during a match against Kushida on the November 18 episode of NXT. Kushida got the win by turning a leg grapevine into a pin. Ruas was returning to NXT in that match after previously being part of Raw Underground. He was drafted to Raw as the brand's final pick in October's WWE Draft.
