Santino Marella suffered a separated left shoulder following a car accident Thursday night in Toronto.

The official WWE website spoke to Marella this morning about the incident.

“I had just left home and was going to get my hair cut before I began packing for WWE’s trip to Puerto Rico,” explained Marella. “[My barber] wasn’t around, so I just decided to go home.”

He was then hit by another vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle remained at the scene of the collision until police arrived, and no foul play is suspected.

“My car flipped sideways and the trunk hit a light pole, it completely crushed in,” Marella said. “The airbags deployed, and all I could smell was gunpowder.”

Marella’s car came to rest near a light pole, and sustained significant damage.

“There was broken glass everywhere, and I tried to open the passenger door, but it was stuck,” Marella said. “Luckily, there was still power in the car. I opened the sunroof and crawled out.”

He will not be at Raw this Monday.

    I have never liked his charcter but he is a great wrestler just needs a better gimmik so he can use some of those skills. As for the accident it is amazing he only has a seperated shoulder i hope to see him back soon just so everyone can see is fine. I wish they would stop ushing him as comedic relief and let him actually fight. Make him more like he was when he debuted as just some guy off the streets of italy.

  • MrDr3w

    I think he’s billed from Patterson, NJ. It’s been awhile since I’ve actually WATCHED one of his matches.

  • voice of reason

    oh shit what a lucky accident he was so damned lucky that it wasnt worse but it was good the other driver stuck around so get well soon santino

  • Buttercastle

    I like Santino how he is now, but maybe instead of focusing on his comedic relief he can be taken more seriously and be given a nice push.

  • basketball with a grudge

    Chance for a re-package maybe? Nothing against Santino but maybe it’s time for WWE to start using him in a more serious role? Just putting it out there.

  • Ho Lee Schitt

    glad to hear he only suffered a separated shoulder. i still think it would have been awesome if he’d actually won the RR.

  • rock

    damn barber shouldve been there. hope he gets a full recovery

  • venom

    I hope he gets better. At least he’ll be off tv for a while.

  • Duke the Dumpster

    Glad he is not more severely injured… but PLEASE let him miss several months of television from this. His is intolerable.

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    Welcome to Toronto! Lucky the guy even bothered to stick around… In this City, stop lights and signs are optional for most drivers.

  • CC

    sounds like he was lucky to get away with a separated shoulder. Guy must have been travelling at some speed when he hit him to turn the car over.

  • grizz

    Take care of yourself Santino, you are my favorite wrestler.
