Trent of The Best Friends suffers torn pec

Trent Beretta Says His Neck Pain Began After He Did Motion-Capture Work For WWE 2K16

AEW Star Trent Beretta recently appeared on the Talk Is Jericho podcast, where he discussed a variety of topics such as how his neck pain began after he did motion-capture work for WWE 2K16 due to how he landed from a suplex.

Trent Beretta said:

“It was on a crash pad, it didn’t even have to be the move it was. They just needed a move where, we started on shoulders with a fireman’s carry, did four moves where the guy on top slips behind, we did four different moves with reversals. Somebody said dragon suplex. Luckily, it was on a crash pad, but it was a guy, I don’t think he did dragon suplexes, and he threw it how you would throw a german, with a high arc, but he had my neck instead of my waist, so I landed right on top of my head on a crash pad. It wasn’t like ‘oh no, I can’t wrestle.’ It just slow, over five or six years, got worse and worse.”

Trent Beretta also discussed how when he was getting ready to come back to in-ring action, he started noticing his neck was really bothering him and the pain was much worse than it had ever been and that is why he decided to get surgery and after he did, all his pain went away.

Trent Beretta said:

“The pec was three months. As I’m getting ready to come back, I started noticing my neck really bothering me. I came back and it was one or two matches. My fingers were tingling all the time, but the main thing was a constant pain in my trap. A constant burning pain. Once it started affecting my sleep is when I said, ‘Shit I have to get this checked out.’ At the time, I was having trouble swallowing, just randomly, it’d be a struggle to swallow. I was waking up having dreams that I was drowning, wake up gasping for air. I thought it was sleep apnea. I never got it checked out. After surgery, I guess there was so much extra bone and shit, when they cleaned it up, it all went away.”
