Raw superstar Ruby Riott is currently recovering from a successful shoulder surgery. WWE posted on their website that Riott underwent the operation yesterday, to repair a bilateral injury to her right shoulder.
“Raw Superstar Ruby Riott underwent successful surgery yesterday to repair a bilateral injury to her right shoulder, WWE.com can confirm.
Riott will receive surgery for the same injury on her left shoulder at a later date.“
There are currently no details explaining whether or not Riott was injured during a match, or if this has been a nagging injury that finally needed attention. We are speculating it was maintenance related, since Riott will be receiving the same surgery on her left shoulder, at a future date.
Last week, Riott was on tour with WWE in Europe, and wrestled in a fatal-four way match in Cardiff. It should be noted that during an in-ring segment with the Sigh Brothers, Ruby was favoring her right shoulder. Whether or not an injury occurred that night has yet to be known.
Best part of last night, thanks to you and @RubyRiottWWE pic.twitter.com/Gu8jGWuXwe— MegaPopcoin (@KinPopcoin) May 18, 2019
Riott was noticeably absent from WWE programming in the last month. Many fans have been upset since she and fellow Riott Squad members were split up during the Superstar Shakeup. Unfortunately, Ruby was also left out of the women’s Money in The Bank ladder match. Her nagging injury would explain this absence, rather than a lack of creative direction.
Ruby Riott is a talented veteran of the ring and deserves to be in the title picture in the women’s division. Let’s hope after she returns from surgery, she will finally get the singles push she deserves.
