Matt Hardy Has Emergency Surgery Tonight

Matt Hardy underwent an emergency appendectomy in a Tampa, Fla. hospital tonight. He was scheduled to appear at tonight’s SmackDown taping, but this suddenly came up. Hardy’s expected to be out of action for one to three months. Hardy didn’t appear at the tapings, so this health issue surfaced earlier in the day.

TAMPA, Fla. – SmackDown Superstar Matt Hardy underwent an emergency appendectomy at a Tampa area hospital tonight. Doctors expect the surgery to keep Hardy out of action anywhere from 1-3 months.

An appendectomy by definition is the removal of the appendix from the lower right area of the abdomen. Oftentimes, if the surgery is not performed immediately, severe consequences can follow.

Hardy’s emergency surgery comes less than a week after suffering a knee injury at the hands of his former partner, the United States Champion MVP. Did the attack by MVP help lead to the appendectomy that Hardy underwent tonight?
