Dalton Castle says he may be out a long time

“I got hurt, and here is the truth of the injury – I broke my back. We have decided, several doctors thought that it was about two years ago that I had broken it. So, I have won a world championship with a broken freakin’ back. I know that I am going to be back in the ring but I don’t know when. The problem was that I was in so much pain I couldn’t handle it anymore. It got to the point where I couldn’t even stand on my own two feet for even a few minutes to do a promo. I hurt my back maybe two years ago and I knew it was back because I watched the entire Summer Olympics on my living room floor. I was slowly working my way back to normal. I was stretching and doing yoga where I felt like I was good again, and then I hurt my back again and this time the pain was different because the pain was shooting down my hip where I couldn’t even get out of bed for more than a few minutes. Getting in and out of a car was very difficult. A lot of my life is spent in car seats and airplane seats, so fighting through the pain was no longer an option. I had to figure out what was really wrong with me and I found out that what physical therapy and what muscles need to be moving, and now with this time off I have been really focusing on tightening up that core because it is my livelihood. I love professional wrestling. I have been getting in and out of a car like a champ right now but I still hurt a lot.”
