Dell Undergoes Surgery
The first person to hold the Lions Pride Sports Championship is on the mend.
“One Man” Mike Dell underwent successful surgery this morning to repair a torn ACL. He will go through physical therapy, and then plans on returning to the ring.
In March 2018 in Rockdale, Texas, Dell became the first winner of the company’s top prize. He’s also the first and only person to hold the title twice, having lost and regained it over the summer in the state’s hottest feud with Lance Hoyt.
The second reign lasted from the end of June until the end of 2018, when Moonshine Mantell captured the championship in Bryan, Texas with help from The Brand. Dell’s battles with Mantell were defined by their hard-hitting, brawling nature. His knees were showing signs of wear and tear from two decades in the ring through those battles.
We wish Dell a speedy, full recovery, and we look forward to seeing him in The Pride again.
