• RAW Wrestler Shares Touching Story After Triple H’s Cardiac Event
WWE issued the following statement regarding Triple H’s health yesterday:
“Paul Levesque, a.k.a. Triple H, underwent a successful procedure last week at Yale New Haven Hospital following a cardiac event. The episode was caused by a genetic heart issue and Paul is expected to make a full recovery.”
A lot of wrestlers wished Triple H a speedy recovery. RAW Wrestler Mustafa Ali went on to share a touching story.
Here’s what Ali tweeted:
“When I was on 205 Live, I had to relocate to Orlando. My wife, who was pregnant at the time, stayed in Chicago.
About a month before the due date, I asked Hunter if could visit home for ‘a week’. Hunter told me ‘Don’t visit. Move back home. Be a father’. Hunter is a good man.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (September 9, 2018) – Old School WCW Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2018, we lost Old School WCW Veteran Frank Andersson at the age of 62 due to complications from heart surgery.
How many Pro-Wrestlers do you know who won an Olympic Medal? Sure most of you will now say Kurt Angle and Ken Patera, but have you ever heard of Frank Andersson?
Andersson won a bronze medal in Greco-Roman Wrestling in the 1984 Olympics for his home country of Sweden.
Somehow that was supposed to qualify him for a career in Professional Wrestling, but I guess not every Olympic Medalist has the potential to become a huge star like Kurt Angle.
After wrestling for NJPW in 1991, and a dark match try out for the World Wrestling Federation in 1993, he got signed by World Championship Wrestling in early 1994 and wrestled for them until he retired in the summer of 1995.
† REST IN PEACE FRANK ANDERSSON
