Jesse Sorensen Talks About His Neck Injury & When He’ll Return To The Ring

Injured TNA Jesse Sorensen recently spoke with about his neck injury from last year, when he plans to return to the ring and more. Here are some highlights of what he said about:

His Neck Injury: “When I first got hurt, I had no feeling from the neck down so it was very scary. I thought I was the next Christopher Reeves. I was completely paralyzed for two days and told I would never move again, never wrestle again. I’m very blessed.”

His Ongoing Recovery: “Right after I got out of the ICU, I had to sit in a neck brace for three months then I had six months of rehab to strengthen my neck and try to get back in the gym. Now I’m fully back in the gym and everything’s going good. I actually have my first bodybuilding show in October in Tampa.”

A Potential Return to the Ring: “My passion for the business – I love this business. It’s my dream, always has been and it’s really what I wanted to do. So many say it was a job and now you’re done with it and tell me to find something else to do. But when it’s your passion, it’s all I think about is getting back in the ring. As of right now, it’s not really up to me [when to return]. I want to focus on the bodybuilding show for a little while. But I would like to hopefully return before the end of 2013.”
