Adam Copeland To Undergo Neck Surgery

One of the biggest news stories of 2011 was WWE Superstar Edge, real name Adam Copeland, announcing his retirement on Monday Night Raw just two weeks after having successfully retained the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXVII against Alberto Del Rio.

The toll of working a full time WWE schedule on a surgically repaired neck for seven years had finally caught up with him. He'd started suffering from numbness and uncontrollable trembling in his arms and hands, so he had an MRI performed with WWE's Medical Director Dr. Joseph Maroon, who subsequently diagnosed him with spinal stenosis, a condition that wrestling with would risk paralysis or even death and one that couldn't be completely cured. Therefore, Dr. Maroon concluded that he would never clear his patient to wrestle for WWE ever again.
