Former WCW star, Lodi is recovering from quintuple bypass surgery. Lodi suffered a heart attack following a match back in June, and he recently spoke to QC News about the ordeal:
“I’m [thinking at the time] 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.”
“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.”
Our thoughts are with Lodi, and we wish him a speedy recovery.
