As noted earlier, Scott Steiner suffered an injury to his throat at the TNA House Show in San Juan, Puerto Rico this past Sunday night. Steiner took a kick to the throat from Apolo in a tag team match that saw Steiner team with Robert Roode against Jeff Jarrett and Apolo.
According to the report, Steiner was scheduled to undergo trachea surgery on Monday in San Juan. It should be noted that he seemed fine after the match, but at 2:00am he was starting to have trouble breathing and was then rushed to the hospital. There is no estimate on how long he will be out of the ring for until after surgery, but the early word is that he won’t be back in the ring for a while.
This will more than likely force TNA to cancel the scheduled TNA World Tag Team Title Match at Slammiversary involving Team 3D vs. The Steiner Brothers. We will continue to follow this story as it develops.
