• 48 Year Old WWE Hall Of Famer Preparing For An In-Ring Return
After getting tested positive for Hepatitis C just at the time of his return to TNA, WWE Hall Of Famer X-Pac’s pro-wrestling career came to a halt.
While speaking on his X-Pac 1,2,360 podcast, X-Pac revealed that he has now fully recovered from it, which means he’s one step closer to wrestling.
“I had hepatitis C for a long time. I tested positive for it when I came back to TNA. After that, I couldn’t get cleared in certain states with athletic commissions, so TNA and WWE couldn’t really have me in matches. I would just do little matches, nothing serious, no blood or anything. Now I’m cured, everyone.
Just this year. I hadn’t mentioned it publicly. It cost $100,000 for treatment. It’s $1,000 a pill, one pill every day. I feel great. Some people are going, ‘How come he never came back?’ That’s the reason.”
He added that his focus will now be on getting his knee fixed and having a final run.
“Now, that’s clear. I’m going to get my knee fixed; I’ve had a torn ACL since the turn of this decade, like 2008 or something. I’m going to get that fixed, and sometime next year; I’ll put myself on the market, have a few more matches. Everyone thinks they have one more run left in them. Anywhere I run, it’d have to be a sprint.
I could [do a regular schedule], I don’t know if I want to. I’ve probably got half a dozen good, hard matches in me. When I tore my ACL, I’ve had some really good matches, even with that. I just want to get it fixed, it’s not that I can’t have matches with it. If I’m going to do a last run, I want that to be [fixed].”
