Sean Waltman posted the following on Twitter updating fans on his health condition.
Last weekend, Waltman was wrestling at the Jerry Lynn retirement show in Minneapolis, MN and “tore his ass” open while performing his signature Bronco Buster move. Here’s what he wrote about the near-death experience:
“The video doesn’t do justice to the severity of the situation. the turnbuckle wasnt covered & my landing should have been 45 degrees. I ended up landing hard & horizontal.”
“The turnbuckle ripped me another new a hole. I knew it right away, U can see me tell ref “tore my ass!” I went to after party briefly, but had to leave as blood starting gushing.”
“Hotel looked like a murder scene. So much blood. Hotel security called ambulance & Dr Morken @ HCMC performed sphincterplasty to save me from having to have a colostomy bag. It hard not to laugh. So feel free to find it humorous.”
“I did almost bleed out, before ambulance got there. I did the x factor from the top rope & 1 through a table after it happened. My concern was Jerry getting the proper send off, Not my butthole.”
