Buff Bagwell Discharged From ICU Following Automobile Accident



Scotty Riggs, who held the WCW World Tag Team Championship with Buff Bagwell, stated Sunday evening on Twitter that he spoke with his former tag team partner after he was involved in a serious car accident last Monday in Georgia. Riggs says while Bagwell is in “rough” shape, he was discharged from intensive care after undergoing successful surgery on Saturday.

Bagwell was driving in Georgia on Monday when he lost control of his Jeep, which flipped on the road and left him with several broken bones in his neck and face, including a snapped jaw. The former WCW Superstar called his wife at 1:35 p.m. to tell her that he was about to suffer a seizure while driving. He was taken to nearby WellStar Kennestone Hospital, where he remained under doctors’ watch in an intensive care unit through the week.

On Friday, Bagwell’s wife Judy stated to TMZ.com that he had been taken off the breathing tube, was able to eat solid foods and talk. Fellow WCW alumni Sting, Rick Steiner, Scott Steiner, Diamond Dallas Page and Riggs, among others, have also kept in contact with Bagwell since the accident.

“It’s really helped that he’s been contacted by friends … he’s really feeling the love,” says Bagwell’s wife.
