BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – After visiting famed orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews to have his injured shoulder examined, Bobby Lashley learned that he has a damaged rotator cuff but will not need surgery at this time.
The former ECW World Champion injured his shoulder during Sundayâ<80><99>s 3-on-1 Handicap Match at Backlash, where he lost the title to Mr. McMahon. It has been suggested that Lashley’s shoulder injury had been lingering since WrestleMania 23 and that he may further aggravated the injury during Backlash.
Dr. Andrews is respected as the preeminent physician athletes seek when they suffer sports injuries. He performed surgery on Triple H after â<80><9c>The Gameâ<80> tore his quadriceps muscles on two separate occasions. Lashley is expected to make an appearance on ECW on Sci Fi tonight and address his championship loss.
NOTE FROM RYAN CLARK: Bobby Lashley is booked for the Judgment Day PPV. It looks right now like ‘Taker vs. Batista is off the books.
