Will Hengelbrok


Gregory Helms is set for fusion surgery on May 21st. He will be out of the ring for approximately one year. He was recently interviewed by WWE.com after announcing that he had a serious neck injury. Helms had this to say:

â<80><9c>It turns out that I have two cracked vertebrae, and one of them is pressing into my spinal cord,â<80> Helms told WWE’s website this afternoon. â<80><9c>One is just demolished, and they told me that the pain I had outside my neck was pretty common; they call it pain referral. One is pressing so far into the spinal cord that I could risk paralysis if I kept going. We get bumps and bruises all the time, and Iâ<80><99>ve been to the hospital before thinking something was wrong when I was just banged up, so I thought that this time too. I have a high tolerance for pain, but this pain is 24/7.â<80>
