Skip Sheffield, who has been sidelined since breaking his leg and ankle on August 18, 2010 at a WWE live event in Honolulu, Hawaii, announced via Twitter that he will be undergoing another surgical procedure this Tuesday.
He wrote, "Will be having a third surgery this Tuesday and it will be the last," Sheffield wrote. "There are a lot of people who are far worse off and this is all happening for a good reason. I wish I was back right now and doing what I love, but things are not right and they have to be fixed. I will be 100 percent very soon and back on WWE TV and I thank all of you for your support. I have kept my head held high and I cannot thank WWE enough for their support in this time. I have worked too hard too long to just give up and while it has been difficult it has only made me a stronger better person so please be patient and I will be back I promise."
That's a tough situation for ol' Skip. He seemed to be poised to be a breakout star with the Nexus. Now we know that group ultimately didn't get treated as well as they should, but still you hate to see a guy with so much potential deal with this type of injury and setback.
I wish Skip the best of luck and hope he can eventually make it back and be at 100%.
I took the time to verify that Skip's Twitter is authentic per WWE's official SuperStar list.
