Fandango won't be throwing out any ceremonial first pitches at Major League Baseball (MLB) games any time soon following a recent update he received regarding his elbow injury.
The longtime WWE Superstar and NXT performer noted via social media that his "dreams of pitching in the MLB are kinda over" now that he has undergone the "Tommy John" surgery on his injured elbow.
Wikipedia offers the following description of the "Tommy John Surgery":
- "Ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction, also known as Tommy John surgery, is a surgical graft procedure where the ulnar collateral ligament in the medial elbow is replaced with either a tendon from elsewhere in the patient's body, or with one from a dead donor."
As covered in a recent installment of the NXT Injury Report, Fandango was sent to the emergency room for imaging after suffering what was believed to be a dislocated elbow during the NXT On USA show at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida on Wednesday, December 11th.
On his official Instagram page, Fandango shared a photo of his arm in a sling with a caption that read, "My dreams of pitching in the MLB are kinda over."
