Last time we actually saw Desmond Wolfe competing in a TNA ring was around August last year. Since then, we have had numerous reports about his disappearance from television. Magnus of TNA Wrestling, during a show, claimed Desmond Wolfe had a tryout for Chelsea Football Club (a soccer club, to you Americans) in an attempt to become a dual athlete, and lately, Hulk Hogan stated on Twitter:
"Desmond's situation is beyond TNA's control, the ball is completely in his court."
Though a return was reportedly in the books when reports and rumors were running rife that Wolfe was backstage at Impact in December filming a promo with then tag-team partner Magnus, the promo never officially aired and his return was pushed to a later date.
Well, the reports spreading through Internet sites dedicated to the sport we love so much are claiming Desmond Wolfe has contracted the Hepatitis C virus, which is a disease transmitted via the blood and can eventually cause inflammation of the liver.
Sean "X-Pac" Waltman also contracted this disease last year.
TNA loves the bloodshed which wrestlers dish out, and if someone wrestled with Wolfe and both had cuts, the wrestler may contract the disease.
Randy Ricci, a former production staff member of TNA, revealed the news via a blog post. Some people have said this is fact, others say it could be a rumor. Ricci then states that Wolfe would be offered a job behind the scenes.
I'm not sure what to make out of this; apparently there is no easy cure for the disease, so why would Hulk Hogan say it's in Wolfe's hands?
There is more to this story than meets the eye. This could be another rumor, or it could be the truth. I guess we must wait it out to actually hear from Wolfe himself.
All I wish to say is: Get well, feel better and hopefully we will see you soon.
