Top Dolla, who was recently released from WWE, shared how a botched move during a match on the December 16th 2022 episode of SmackDown turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

Attempting a leaping plancha, Top Dolla badly botched the move, leading to ridicule from fans and WWE commentator Michael Cole.

However, on the one-year anniversary of the incident, Top Dolla revealed that the botched dive prompted him to see a doctor. The examination resulted in the discovery that he had Type II diabetes, with a dangerously high blood sugar level of 626.

The botch, in an unexpected turn, saved his life by leading to a medical examination that potentially prevented severe health issues, including the risk of losing his life and both legs.

Here’s what Top Dolla tweeted:

“The botch saved my life. I made that dive a dozen times before, legs felt off but I didn’t think about it. After I failed I went to the doc & found out I had Type II diabetes & my blood sugar was 626.

I almost lost my life & was about to lose both feet. The botch saved my life.”

Top Dolla recently revealed that Michael Cole constantly making fun of him on commentary for this botch was supposed to lead to a match between them. He posted the following:

“Wait until you idiots realize me and Michael was working together and y’all was too dense to catch on. Michael Cole is a real one.

Me and Cole wanted a match at a PLE. We even had it planned out. I throw him around for 5 minutes, I get cocky and get distracted by (insert any wrestler here) & he beats me with a small package.”

One proposed scenario for the match involved Top Dolla being distracted by Cole’s former broadcast colleague, Pat McAfee, known for his sporadic appearances in WWE.
