Two-time IWGP heavyweight champion and former WCW wrestler Yuji Nagata, 39, was rushed to the hospital this morning when he showed up at Tokyo Sumo Hall for a New Japan show complaining of severe pain in the brain, reports the Wrestling Observer. He also said that he had no control of the left side of his body. According to people backstage, Nagata was speaking clearly. Also, the right side of his body was fine. Nagata said he had severe headaches two weeks ago but continued to wrestle and never got them checked out. Doctors at the show believe that he may have suffered a stroke.
Former WCW wrestler Tank Abbott was knocked out in only 43 seconds by Kimbo Slice at last night’s Elite XC MMA show. Slice’s knockout blow caused Abbott to do a “Flair flop.”
