The details surrounding just what the surgery was for are fuzzy, but we reached out to his publicist for some info and got: "No comment, but he's fine." Action tweeted similarly earlier today, so it looks like he's on the mend. Stick to burgers, Bronson!

Update (8:19 PM):  According to Bronson's publicist, "The emergency surgery was due to complications from ongoing hernia issues from Bronson’s powerlifting days. He’s doing great and is in good spirits."
