NJPW star Michael Elgin is set for surgery on Thursday to repair a fractured orbital bone.
"New Japan's a huge company, and they wanted me to get it looked at," Elgin said. "I mean, it was the right thing because it's called a blowout fracture of the orbital bone, and basically the bottom of your orbital here [points to eye] gets fractured, and a lot of the tissue that holds your eye into place is coming through the fracture."
According to Elgin, he still plans to challenge Tetsuya Naito in a rematch for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship at Power Struggle on November 5.
