Joey Ryan says surgery 'likely' following torn pectoral muscle


Joey Ryan has pulled himself from dates this weekend following a torn pectoral muscle.

During tonight’s MLW television tapings in Chicago, Ryan came to the ring for a scheduled tag match with his arm in a sling. Despite being injured, he and Swoggle ended up defeating the Dirty Blondes. Following the bout, Ryan took off his sling and revealed that his arm was black and purple, saying that he had torn his pec and surgery was likely.

On Twitter, Ryan posted a picture of the injured area, saying “Had a blast teaming with @wwehornswoggle tonight in Chicago but it’s true; I tore my pec (heard it’s going around) last night in Austin. Unfortunately, I need to pull off [Pro Wrestling After Dark] & [Southside Wrestling] for the rest of the weekend so I can see my doctor & figure out the severity of it.

Ryan is referring to Triple H, who tore his pectoral muscle during Crown Jewel last Friday. He underwent successful surgery the following Tuesday.
