Skip Sheffield injury update

Another surgery for Skip Sheffield?  Yes, according to Lords of's Daniel Pena crediting Skip himself via Twitter and PWInsider.

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.
