Dean Ambrose Discusses Staph Infection that Nearly Killed Him

Published

on

WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose is opening up about a staph infection that he says nearly cost him his life.

Ambrose suffered a right triceps injury back in December and his recovery was pushed back due to a staph infection that he developed after undergoing surgery to repair the tricep, and Ambrose says that the injury was nearly fatal.

“I ended up having two different surgeries,” Ambrose said, during an interview with the Monitor. “I had this MRSA, Staph infection, I nearly died.”

“I was in the hospital for a week plugged up to this antibiotic drip thing, and I was on all these antibiotics for months that make you puke and crap your pants.”

“They said they found traces of an infection during the first surgery, but they cleaned it out,” Ambrose stated, adding that he went back to the doctor several weeks after surgery because his elbow wasn’t healing right.

“If I hadn’t gone in for that checkup, I could’ve gotten seriously sick” Ambros admitted. “It could’ve been even more dangerous. But it all worked out.”

Lio Rush Backstage Reputation

Published

on

WWE superstar Lio Rush has been in the middle of a confusing wrinkle in his association with Bobby Lashley, who seems to be done with Rush, but still teaming with him.

Lashley attacked Rush following Fin Balor pinning Rush in their handicapped match at Elimination Chamber, which cost Lashley his Intercontinental Championship despite not being pinned.

It’s been an interesting direction for Rush’s character, and according to PWInsider’s Mike Johnson (h/t WrestlingNews.co) Rush may have a reputation backstage.

“It appears Lio Rush is done with Bobby Lashley. I can tell you behind the scenes there were not a lot of people surprised at that and not a lot of people surprised that Lio took the pin. There are times Lio has a reputation for rubbing people, including other workers, the wrong way. Whether that was being held against him and that was part of the reasoning for him losing or whether it was just a decision to protect Lashley and shift the belt to Finn Balor, I guess we’ll have to see based on how Lio is presented in the weeks and months to come.”

D-Generation X, with Chyna, to be Inducted in WWE Hall of Fame

Published

Chyna will finally get recognized and honored as a WWE Hall of Famer.

According to ESPN, Degeneration-X will be officially inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2019.

Shawn Michaels, Triple H, The New Age Outlaws, X-Pac, and Chyna will all be inducted. It will mark Michaels’ second induction into the Hall of Fame.

“I think it’s the most meaningful for us all to go in together and to be recognized together,” Tripe H said, according to ESPN. “Because I think both groups were [just] as impactful.”

“It’s a funny thing, because DX was something that, before Kevin [Nash] and Scott [Hall] left, at the time we all talked about using ‘The Kliq’ as it was — kind of morphing that into television, since it was so out there anyways,” said Levesque. “But things worked out the way they did — they left, and the timing was right.”

“Shawn and I still wanted to do it. Vince saw the value in it, I guess, and finally let us go at it, by that point in time I was looking for a heater, and we had brought Chyna.”

Triple H went on to say Chyna deserved to be in the Hall of Fame.

“Look, people believe what they want to believe. When I said a few years ago on the Austin podcast, or show, or whatever you want to call it, there’s complexities around it,” said Triple H. “But absolutely, definitely deserves to be in there. It’d be tough to pick a female that was more impactful on the business. She did something that was completely so out of left field that it wasn’t even being considered when we first brought it up for her to come in. It wasn’t even a consideration… it wasn’t an easy thing, and against all odds she did all of that.”

And as far as Chyna being inducted in the future as single’s competitor, which she deserves, Triple H is confident it will happen eventually.

“From that standpoint, absolutely 100 percent deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, and should probably be more than once — as a group, but individually as well,” Levesque continued. “There’s more complexity to that than meets the eye, but here we are. I’m just happy that it’s here. I’m happy for her family, the people that she was close to, that hopefully this is super meaningful to them. I know it would be to her. It’s a great thing — very deserving.”
