Fortunately, this is not a story about a troubled star that wound up in the hospital due to a drug or alcohol problem.
With that being said, it's never good to hear that anyone has been sent to the hospital. However, it is refreshing to hear that a former star was sent in for something related to his profession.
According to WrestlingInc.com:
Sean Waltman was injured on Saturday night in Jerry Lynn's retirement match for the Heavy On Wrestling promotion in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Waltman left the show and attended the after-party for about an hour until he had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital because he wouldn't stop bleeding. Waltman had surgery on Sunday morning and was doing better Sunday afternoon, according to Prowrestling.net.
Overall, Sean Waltman seems like he will be back up and running in no time. Let's just hope that he can continue to work the rest of his scheduled indy dates and keep some cash rolling in.
Even though he is still recovering, he managed to find some time Monday morning to tweet the following message to his fans.
Sean Waltman @TheRealXPac
Sorry its taken so long to thank everyone. I'll be getting out of hospital today.Thank U Jerry Lynn. If it wasnt for U there would be no me3/25/2013, 1:41:33 PM
Fortunately for Waltman, he is still under the WWE's wing as he recently revealed that he was given a "Legend's" contract. So even if he cannot work in the ring, he can still make appearances for the company and earn some easy money that way.
Let's face it, being pals with the bosses son-in-law comes with its perks. Don't get me wrong, Waltman definitely deserves the deal he got as he has solidified himself as one of the better mid-carder's in WWE's history.
However, I am sure his deal came through sooner than it would of had he not been friends with Triple H.
Ultimately, we will have to wait and see if Waltman ever reveals what the injury was and the reason that he couldn't stop bleeding. In the end, he will leave the hospital with a recovery time frame and let fans know when he will be back on tour.
