Joey Ryan is expected to miss quite a bit of time from the ring. Ryan suffered a torn pectoral muscle recently which will require surgery to repair. He hasn’t competed since the MLW taping in November, where he wrestled with a sling on his arm. With the significance of the injury, Ryan will likely spend a significant time on the shelf.

A few days ago, Ryan took to Twitter and provided fans with an update on his status. Ryan confirmed doctors are recommending surgery and he will have to call to make the appointment soon:

“The MRI revealed that I have an acute tear of the left pectoral muscle including a high-grade tear of the clavicular head at the myotendinous junction and a high-grade intratendinous tear of the sternal head with retraction and hemorrhage into the muscle belly. Disorganized fibers of the muscle tendon tear identified within the deltopectorial groove.

“The Doctor is recommending surgery and I’m to call the surgeon on Monday or Tuesday to set up an appointment to see them. A timetable on recovery will be determined by the surgeon.”

He again took to Twitter last night to provide fans with another update. Ryan revealed a list of appearances on his tour that he was forced to call off due to the injury. You can see the dates below:

  • 12/8: House Of Hardcore
  • 12/9: FEST Wrestling
  • 12/13-4: MLW
  • 12/22: HurricanePro
  • 12/27: NOVA Pro Wrestling
