The road to recovery begins again for Arturo Ruas.
On the November 18 episode of NXT, Arturo Ruas returned to the black and gold brand in a match against Kushida but unfortunately, he would leave that match having suffered an injury.
Our premium service, Fightful Select first reported that his injury was believed to be a torn bicep.
Fightful has learned that Arturo Ruas sustained an arm injury, feared to be a torn biceps on this week's episode of NXT in his match with Kushida. Ruas filmed some additional content for WWE digital, but it didn't end up making air. When we asked about his status on Raw, we're told that the company sidelining Raw Underground set the stage for his NXT return, as many expected. His NXT appearance was not scheduled to be a one-off, as there were creative plans for him moving forward in NXT.
Ruas has taken to Twitter to update fans on his condition, letting everyone know he's undergone successful surgery.
The surgery was successful now it’s time to heal and comeback stronger. For a warrior there will only be victory with a good fight and glory with honor. #beastmode #healing #champion #wwe #wwenxt #meteamao #technique pic.twitter.com/6h77LTJIYm— Arturo Ruas (@arturoruaswwe) December 5, 2020
