To the disappointment of some fans and the women themselves, WWE split up the women’s heel trio of the Riott Squad during the Superstar Shakeup, and we have yet to hear anything about the Squad’s erstwhile leader since.
Now, it’s been confirmed that Riott’s absence was to give her time to go get, not one, but two shoulder surgeries.
According to WWE.com, Riott had surgery to repair a bilateral injury to her right shoulder on Wednesday (May 22).
Riott herself also posted a photo on her Instagram right after her surgery. Riott captioned her photo: One down, one to go. No word yet as to when her next surgery will take place or when we can expect her back on TV.
Riott is still currently part of the Raw women’s roster but we haven’t seen her on TV since April 21. She did, however, work house shows until last week.
