WWE star Matt Cappotelli dies at 38
    2018-07-02  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

FORMER WWE star Matt Cappotelli, a winner of the wrestling reality competition series “Tough Enough,” died Friday after a battle with cancer, his wife announced. He was 38.

In a Facebook group dedicated to supporting her husband, Lindsay Cappotelli wrote, “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 whose 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.”

The WWE also posted the news of Matt Cappotelli’s death, calling him “a promising Superstar” in a tweet. Matt Cappotelli was one of the co-winners of the third season of WWE’s wrestling competition series “Tough Enough.” Matt Cappotelli shared his 2003 win with John Hennigan, who was later known as John Morrison, the WWE said in an article on its website about Matt Cappotelli’s death.

Prior to appearing on the TV competition, Matt Cappotelli was on the Western Michigan University football team, WWE wrote.

After the “Tough Enough” win, Matt Cappotelli began training to become a future WWE Superstar, but his work was cut short due to a brain cancer diagnosis in 2006. Matt Cappotelli was treated a year later, but the cancer returned in 2017 and worsened that year, WWE wrote.

Despite battling the disease, Matt Cappotelli tried to have a positive outlook and shared that with WWE in 2017.

“Life is the most precious gift we’re given,” Matt Cappotelli told WWE.com that year. “If I can inspire others to not give up on the life they’ve been blessed to have, that’s what I’m trying to spread — hope.”

He underwent emergency surgery in June 2017 to treat the cancer after doctors discovered the disease had returned 10 years after it went into remission. Cappotelli was then working as a trainer at Ohio Valley Wrestling in Lexington, Kentucky.
