*BREAKING* Former Tough Enough Winner Matt Cappotelli Passes Away

Published

on

In some heartbreaking news to report this evening, former WWE Tough Enough winner Matt Cappotelli has passed away today at the age of 38 which was announced by his wife on Facebook:

“Hey Team Capp…I’ve been struggling with what to say and how to say this, and I’ll probably end up rambling, but here goes. Today my love-my strong, sweet, beautiful love-took his last breath at 3:30 a.m. and went Home to be with Jesus…exactly one year after his brain surgery. You think you can be prepared for this when you know it’s coming, but you just can’t. The only person who’s comfort I want right now is the one who can’t give it to me. I miss him so much. I know where he is now is so much better, but it doesn’t change how much I miss him.”

It’s no secret that Cappotelli has suffered from health issues after he was diagnosed with grade IV glioblastoma multiforme, the most aggressive form of brain cancer, last July. Matt had previously beaten grade 2/3 astrocytoma, another form of brain cancer, when he had a tumor removed that forced him to retire from the ring back in April 2007. Recently, Matt’s wife, Lindsay, had spoken out about his struggles and declining health back in May with a very heartwrenching blog post that indicated he didn’t have much time left as he could no longer eat on his own:

“Here’s where we’re at right now: Matt finished his radiation treatments last week. Did they help? I don’t know. He’s sleeping a lot more. Having trouble chewing and swallowing. Not eating much. Not talking much, at least not in full sentences. It’s just been a slow, steady decline for the last few months. I think it was really too late for radiation….But who knows, maybe it is delaying things.

I don’t know how much longer we have left, so I’m just loving him and kissing him and encouraging him with my words(I hope) and reading the bible to him at night….making sure he knows that I’ll be okay. And I am okay…right now. I’m okay right now, because I still have his hand to hold. I’m okay right now, because I say “I love you”, and I get to hear him whisper, “I love you, too.” I’m okay right now, because I still get to fall asleep with him by my side and wake up in the morning with my arm around him. I’m okay right now, because I get to look into his beautiful eyes and see his smile and kiss his face every day. I’m okay right now, because he’s still here with me. But when he’s not…you might as well just rip out my heart right out of my chest. I try to imagine life without him…I try to prepare myself for that outcome…but I just can’t really know what it will feel like. Life without him seems unimagineable.”

The Chairshot would like to send its deepest condolences to all of Matt’s family and friends during this time. Below are some reactions from wrestling personalities who were touched by Matt’s life:
