The wrestlers that make their living in the WWE understand that it is a dangerous business.
When they step into that ring and go up against another elite performer they know that anything can happen - good, or bad. Unfortunately that includes the threat of injury.
Indeed, the WWE has seen a number of high profile stars go down with serious issues in recent weeks with their future's remaining largely unclear. One Superstar has attempted to address that today by posting his own photo showing the dramatic scene following what he describes as successful surgery.

Veteran wrestler Goldust was, last week, ruled out for several months following WWE confirmation that he would require shoulder surgery on his ageing body. The 46-year-old has updated fans on his current condition via his official Twitter account.

Fans who feared the 46-year-old would have to consider his future in the company will at least be able to take some solace in Goldust's claim that he is "fixed." Although there is clearly a long road ahead before anyone can know for certain whether he will be able to compete at the top level again.
The initial prognosis before Goldust went under the knife suggested that he would likely miss at least five pay-per-view events. Always a popular draw for WWE crowds, there is no doubt fans will be wishing him well and seeing this dramatic hospital bed image.
WWE fans don't have to be reminded of that after fan favorite Daniel Bryan's very public injury nightmare saw its latest update this week.
After returning to the action earlier this year after months off following his own surgery - wowing the crowd at WrestleMania 31 in the process - Bryan's own future is now very much up in the air.
After failing to fight since being pulled from the recent European Tour this Monday's Raw saw the Yes! Movement leader admit that he couldn't promise the WWE Universe that he'd ever be able to wrestle again.
