Former WWE star needs double knee, shoulder replacement


Former World Wrestling Entertainment and Extreme Championship Wrestling star turned commentator Taz needs a double knee and double shoulder replacement, according to a May 1 report from Wrestle Zone.

"Went to a highly acclaimed orthopedic surgeon yesterday to discuss my knee. It's been brutal for a couple of years, he did testing and x-rays on me. So, both of my shoulders & knees need to be replaced. Four joints," the star posted on X. Taz added his issues stem from pushing too hard in the weight room, not from his time in the ring. 

Instead of doing the replacements immediately, Taz plans to seek out regenerative procedures to try to alleviate pain.
