Heath has been out of the ring since sustaining an injury while competing at IMPACT Bound For Glory in October 2020. The former WWE Superstar had been scheduled to win the Call Your Shot Battle Royal at the event prior to suffering the injury, but plans had to be quickly changed, with Rhino picking up the win.
In December, Heath stated that he hoped to return in January, but appearing in a new video posted to Twitter, the former WWE Tag Team Champion has revealed that he will be undergoing surgery on March 1st.

Speaking in the video Heath ran down his list of injuries, explaining that it has taken three months to find a doctor who is willing to do all of the work in one go, before describing things as “a little bit of a mess.”
“After three different doctors, and three different ways to go with this, I finally found a doctor that can do everything at once. Yes, it has taken three months to find this doctor, and yes it’s been an up and down rollercoaster ride of crap…
I have sports hernia on the left side of my pubic bone, another hernia on the right side, they don’t even know the name of it. My adductor muscle is actually ripped off the bone… and I have a rip in my abdomen wall on both sides, so, a little bit of a mess.”
While he has quite the list of injuries Heath went on to say that his spirits remain high, although he will be out of action for a little while.
“My spirits are still high. I’m going to be out for a little while. My surgery is, thank God, March 1st. So after March 1st it’s going to be the road to recovery, so keep me in your prayers everybody.”
Everyone at Inside The Ropes wishes Heath a speedy recovery and hopes to see him back in the ring soon!
