Former WCW wrestler Lodi (age 52) suffered a heart attack after a recent match for an independent wrestling promotion, while driving with his car.
Here’s what he told QCNews about what happened:
“I’m like ‘God, just don’t let me hurt anyone, because we all know how Macho Man Randy Savage died’.
I was doubled over and driving one hand and trying to keep my eyes on the road.
I never said I was smart but I’m hard-headed.
They showed the three major arteries. The first two were blocked at 100%. The last one, they call it the Widow Maker. If that gets blocked, you are more than likely going to die. It was blocked at 90%.
It was serious. And it was scary.
Without me even questioning her, my nurse looked at me and said, you know you’re going to wrestle again.
I know God was with me through all of this. I’m going to rehab and work on getting me better.”
Lodi (Real name: Bradley Cain) joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1997 as a member of Raven’s Flock.
In 1999, he teamed up with Lenny Lane as ‘The West Hollywood Blondes’, before they had a gimmick change and their team renamed ‘Standards and Practices’.
