More Details On R-Truth Injury Revealed

Published

R-Truth was injured at NXT in November 2022 and was sidelined for an extended period of time, but he finally returned at last year’s Survivor Series.


However, Truth has now revealed that doctors almost had to amputate his leg due to complications from the injury.

While speaking on The Ringer Wrestling Show, R-Truth gave insight into the health issues that led to his extended absence from the Squared Circle.

He revealed details about what started as a routine quadriceps tear and ended up with a serious infection that left a hole in his knee.

This infection affected multiple bacteria, including MRSA.

R-Truth described the grueling recovery process that took months, including surgery, a wound VAC, and a PICC line.

I had a hole in my knee. I had five different bacteria that caused the infection along with MRSA, staff, and their cousins and kinfolks.

It started off as a routine quad tear. I tore my bottom quad. They went in and I guess it could have happened during surgery. I went to get the stitches out and we found out that the bacteria, the infection, was eating from the inside out so that’s where the hole came from.

The doctor said, ‘We gotta get this under control. If we can’t get this under control, I’m gonna have to think of options.’

He was straight shooting with me. He said, ‘You’re in the woods big time. We have to get this under control.’ It would not heal.”

”Then I had to go three months, I had to have a wound VAC on.

It was a VAC on my knee that kept sucking the old blood up and putting the new blood, all that stuff, like I had to wear that for six weeks all along with a PICC line that I had to have for eight weeks.

I did that, and once all that was over with, the stitches started coming out on their own. So I had stitches coming out of my knee by itself, so my body wasn’t agreeing to it so I had to get surgery for a third time and the infection was still there, so I had to get another PICC line as well.”

R-Truth shared the mental strain and the stark reality of facing the potential of amputation. The experience served as a significant reality check, prompting him to reevaluate and reflect on life during this unexpected health crisis.

”It was a good four months or five months of just trying to kill the infection, slow it down, stop it, and I’m going mentally crazy because there was a chance, he said, the other option was amputation.

You know what I’m saying? So to go from doing the 24/7 stuff, running around, doing things with my kids, to NXT, me and Grayson Waller tearing it down and doing things to stopping and then getting told this? It was a big reality check man.

It was a pump the brakes moment.”

R-Truth is currently involved in the storyline ‘The Judgment Day‘ and fans couldn’t be happier to know that he is healthy and able to continue doing what he loves most.

After all, an amputation would have ended his professional wrestling career forever, and no one would have wanted that.
