    Report: Bell Connelly to face neck surgery

    The following blurb appeared in the 5/17 issue of the Wrestling Voyeur Newsletter:

    Former World Heavyweight Champion; Bell Connelly’s career is in jeopardy as FWA confirmed that this week she’d be going through surgery early next week to correct a combination of a bone spur protrusion and spinal disc protrusion in her mid-neck area.


    Without the operation, Connelly faces a markedly increased risk of paralysis and an end to her wrestling career according to her surgeon, Dr Alan J. Lambert


    "The wrestler’s risk factor is “complicated by a narrow spinal canal,” says Lambert, leaving the spinal cord less-than-normal room to move or expand. This enhances the possibility of the cord being severed via traumatic injury. Complete severing of the spinal cord between vertebras C3 and C4 in the mid-neck results in quadriplegia. This would leave Connelly unable to move from the neck down voluntarily.


    Connelly suffered the injury, during the triple threat main event at Quest For The Best. After receiving The Journey’s end, resulting in a improved finished after which, Connelly was seen struggling to her feet clearly suffering from leg convulsions followed quickly by the wrestler being transported to the local hospital complaining of acute neck pain and experiencing numbness and uncontrollable trembling in her limbs.

    “The film of the bout is frightening after getting pinned she physically couldn’t stand, she had no control over her legs whatsoever. I think it’s a wonder she wasn’t made a quadriplegic.” Said, Dr Lambert


    With surgery is on the horizon. The questions are: Which procedure will she have? Moreover, Will we ever see her return to the ring? The fact that those questions are unanswered right now is actually good news, because at first it was a foregone conclusion that Connelly would have spinal-cord fusion However, instead the plan is to take pressure off the nerves in the spinal cord, chips off bone spurs, slightly restructure the discs and “make sure everything’s naturally the way it’s supposed to be.” Dr Lambert, who has 30 years experience in neurosurgery, told reporters.


    Depending on the results, it’s up in the air when we might see Bell Connelly wrestle again, even with a successful operation, there is a likelihood that Connelly’s signature high risk, uniquely athletic style might need to be watered down to prevent aggravating her neck, And that's if she does decide to return to the ring which is tossed further in doubt with the rumours of an emerging interest in taking to the stage of Broadway compounded by this latest news.

    The most amazing thing about this recent conversation is that I've learned AON is even more of a waste of space than I thought he was previously

    Surely Bell Connolly could just like sing any injury better?
