• “I was embarrassed that this could happen to me” – D-Von Dudley On Suffering A Stroke Recently
On the newest episode of the Table Talk podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer D-Von Dudley provided a detailed update on his current health, after the Dudley Boyz member suffered a stroke in November 2020.
D-Von retired from in-ring competition in 2016 and then started to work for the WWE as a producer.
Here’s what the 2018 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“It could have been really bad. I had a stroke. It could have been really bad. By the grace of God, they got it in time, there’s no ill effects, I’m healing up extremely well.
John Laurinaitis has called and really has been monitoring me, making sure I’m getting the right care and everything.
Vince called and wanted to make sure I was ok.
Here’s why I like Stephanie McMahon so much. When the stroke happened, she called my wife and then called me and left a message and said, ‘I know you’re going to beat this. I know you are going to do well, but I want to hear it from you, so I will call you back because I want to hear you tell me you’re going to be ok’.
Sure enough, she called me back and I couldn’t answer. I called her back and she said, ‘It’s so great to hear your voice’.
The WWE, I will say, they will call, they will make sure they’re there. They have been there for me and they’ve done it for me.
So, I could never, ever, say anything bad about WWE. They’ve taken care of me in ways I never thought they would and they did.
So, thank you for everything you’ve done for me during this time.
When the stroke happened, I was embarrassed that this could happen to me…She was the one who made the phone call for me.
I woke up at 5:30 in the morning to go to the bathroom and I couldn’t feel my legs, they called the ambulance and took me in.
I had a stroke and I was bleeding internally as well, so they had to stop that. They put a stent in my right side.
They ran it up to my brain because I had to have brain surgery, so instead of cutting me up, they ran it right up to the brain to break up the blood clot.
Hopefully, I can return back as a producer in WWE soon. I want to say thank you to everybody. It happened November 13th. I’m good now.”
