Dustin Rayz Injury Report
Tuesday, December 6, 2011 @ 06:51am EST

As those of you in attendance this past weekend at "Cage of Death XIII" saw, DUSTIN RAYZ was seriously injured during the 6 man scramble match. X-Rays have shown that Dustin fractured his femur. Dustin spoke with us & posted his prognosis on his Facebook page:

"First I want to say THANK YOU for the overwhelming response I received from everyone, especially my brothers & sisters in the wrestling business, as well the staff and management of CZW! If not for you I feel that I would be in a worse condition physically and mentally!

Once I arrived at Jefferson Hospital, they drilled a rod straight through the side of my knee & attached a weight and pulley to it so as to stretch the leg (while I was STILL conscious). I went into surgery Sunday morning to repair my shattered femur with a 17" rod screwed to my leg.

When asked about recovery & how long before I could step in the ring again, I was told anywhere from 6 to 8 months before I could begin to WALK NORMALLY! This news was hard to swallow seeing as how I not only make my living off of wrestling, but more importantly because I LOVE this business, and have sacrificed so much for the success I have gotten! I've been told to walk away & give up. Well the fact of the matter is this; I HAVE SUFFERED DEFEAT, PAIN, & LOSS! Still, I will push to the edge and NEVER choke on failure! Today I start rehab on my leg and the long road back to where I belong...IN THE RING!"

Here are photos of the injury:
