Bagwell Update
On April 23, 2012, Bagwell was seriously injured in a car accident. According to the Woodstock police report, Bagwell called his wife at 1:35 p.m. to tell her that he was about to suffer a seizure while driving. He was subsequently taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital in his hometown of Marietta, Georgia, where he was placed in the hospital's intensive care unit after suffering broken bones in his neck, face and jaw. On April 24, fellow WCW alumnus and former tag team partner Scott Norton released a statement via Twitter to confirm that Bagwell was going to be alright. On April 25, Universal Championship Wrestling and Bagwell's brother John released a statement to confirm that Bagwell's condition was improving, but that he still required breathing and feeding tubes and would undergo surgery once the swelling in his face and neck subsided. On April 28, Bagwell's wife Judy revealed to TMZ that he had been taken off the breathing tube, was able to eat solid foods, and was able to talk. Fellow WCW alumni Sting, the Steiner Brothers, and Diamond Dallas Page have also kept in contact with Bagwell since his crash.


A close call for Bagwell. His condition is now described as "improving, but not yet stable".

Sabu Update
According to reports, Sabu was unable to report at the site of the Extreme Reunion event in Philadelphia tonight. Earlier this afternoon, Sabu was found in "bad shape" in his hotel room. A 911 called was placed and Sabu was rushed to the hospital in Philly. He is still hospitalized as of this writing. Sabu was scheduled to work Shane Douglas in the main event. No decision has been made yet as to how to publicly address it to the live crowd.


- TMZ has picked up on the story of ECW Original Sabu being rushed to the hospital before today's Extreme Reunion event in Philadelphia, PA. They say Sabu had an allergic reaction to medication. Here is their report:

"Sabu -- a hardcore wrestling icon -- was rushed to the hospital before a scheduled event tonight in Pennsylvania ... TMZ has learned. Cops in Travose, PA tell TMZ they were dispatched to a hotel for a medical emergency, but wouldn't elaborate. The manager at the hotel where Sabu was staying tells TMZ the staff there felt the wrestler was intoxicated when paramedics were called. A source close to Sabu tells TMZ he had been MIA all day and promoters for an ECW reunion event he was scheduled to appear at could not get in touch with him. According to our source, Sabu had an allergic reaction to a medication he had been taking."


A picture of Sabu was taken in his unresponsive state. WARNING. THIS PICTURE IS DISTURBING. NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. Don't click if you are easily spooked.

Edge Update
It appears that Edge is going to let his contract with WWE expire on Monday. The 2012 WWE Hall of Famer was reportedly offered a new deal to remain exclusive to the company and didn't sign it. Edge will be appearing at the Resistance Pro Wrestling show on May 11th in Chicago. WWE had previously offered Edge a new contract and were upset that the news leaked about his deal coming to an end. Word going around is that WWE tried to lowball Edge on the new contract they offered him before he came to Detroit this week. To get an idea of how bad WWE tried low-balling Edge, Shawn Michaels makes around $300,000 a year under his contract with WWE and Mick Foley makes a "little less." It's said that Edge wasn't even offered close to what Foley makes.

As I post this, the IWC is in a frenzy. There is a problem with the Sabu Story. Basically we have conflicting reports. Several reports out there say that Sabu is dead while others say that no updates on his condition can be confirmed at this time. I'm going through every site that I know as well as every forum and its an absolute frenzy on whats the truth and whats not. Hopefully by morning we have an update of some kind. PWI says that there is no update on his condition at this time. That was posted sometime around 12:50 A.M.

Edit: Its been confirmed that Justin Credible took the picture of Sabu in the link above. Sabu and Credible were supposed to be working at a ECW Reunion show last night in Philly. Apparently, Credible was found backstage passed out. Wtf is going on?

Edit 2: Tommy Dreamer has tweeted that Sabu is not dead. Now I can sleep in peace.
