Former Impact World Champion Eddie Edwards is dealing with what is believed to be appendicitis.

According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Edwards was in Nashville, TN, Monday afternoon, presumably for another set of TV tapings. Meltzer didn't know whether the issues arose on Sunday or Monday or if the 37-year-old will have his appendix removed.

Edwards' recovery time could be a month or longer depending on the severity of the appendicitis, the success of surgery if required, and adherence to any post-surgery protocol.

Neither Edwards or Impact have publicly acknowledged the situation.

Edwards was last seen at Saturday's pre-taped Under Siege as he and Tag Team Champions FinJuice took on Impact World Champion Kenny Omega and the Good Brothers. Edwards got the pin on Anderson after hitting the Boston Knee Party. 

Edwards had not been announced as having a match on this Thursday's Impact. He has spent the last few months feuding with old rival Sami Callihan and Violent By Design.
