• Former Intercontinental Champion Wrestled With A Ruptured Eardrum During His Entire WWE Run

We recently reported that Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his former ‘WWE Clash of the Castle 2022’ main event opponent Drew McIntyre suffered ruptured eardrums at this year’s Survivor Series PLE on November 27th.

Former WWE Superstar Ryback took to Twitter and revealed that he suffered a similar injury back in WWE’s then developmental promotion Deep South Wrestling, and dealt with the aftermath of it during his entire 2010-2016 main roster run.

Here’s what the former Intercontinental Champion tweeted:

“True story. I got my eardrum ruptured in Deep South Wrestling. A full blown hole in my ear, puking all night had to go to ER.

Didn’t miss any time in developmental and it never healed. Wrestled my whole time as Ryback not able to hear and getting frequent ear infections. #Levels”
