• IMPACT Wrestling Star To Undergo Surgery For Brain Cancer
IMPACT Wrestling announced the following regarding Joe Doering:
“IMPACT Wrestling star Joe Doering is stepping away from competition to take care of his health.
The 40-year-old battled brain cancer 6 years ago and, at last weekend’s taping at The Factory in Dallas, he informed IMPACT Wrestling management that the disease has returned.
Joe will be undergoing surgery in the coming weeks.”
Doering said the following about his upcoming surgery:
“They told me in 2016 that I would never wrestle again, and I proved them wrong. Guess I’m going to have to do it again. I try to not get too sad or emotional about it. Staying positive really helped me the first time, and that’s what I’ll do again.
Please keep me in your thoughts and spirits. I hope to get back in the ring again very soon. To the IMPACT Wrestling locker room: you are family to me and I look forward to seeing you again very, very soon.”
IMPACT Wrestling Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore said:
“I know our fans and the wider wrestling community will join everyone at IMPACT in keeping Joe and his wife Lindsay in their thoughts and prayers. Joe loves pro wrestling and we all look forward to him returning to action when he’s ready.”
